Cecil officials pass development bill

The Board of Cecil County Commissioners has announced the passage of House Bill 1562, "Cecil County Special Taxing Districts," by the Maryland General Assembly.

The legislation will provide the county with a tool to help establish needed infrastructure, especially in preparation for BRAC, the nationwide base realignment.

It will also direct growth into the designated growth corridor to avoid taxing existing Cecil residents for BRAC.
