Despite vehement opposition from operators of downtown hotels and parking garages, Baltimore City Council members stood firm Thursday in their support of a contentious package of new taxes, saying the money was needed to stem a torrent of red ink. "We're facing a $121 million deficit," said Councilwoman Helen L. Holton, head of the council's finance committee. "What do we do?" Holton and other committee members gently chided a group of business leaders who came to a public hearing to complain, reminding them repeatedly of the city's dismal financial state and all but declaring that, if taxes are not raised, disaster will follow.

When President Barack Obama comes to Baltimore for a large fundraiser Tuesday at an Inner Harbor hotel, he'll first stop at the home of an Owings Mills developer who has kept a remarkably low profile despite having poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into Democratic campaigns over the past decade. Josh E. Fidler and his wife, Genine, will host Obama for a lunch that will cost guests up to $50,000. That's more than VIPs paid to dine with the president at George Clooney's home in Los Angeles last month.

Members of the city's Board of Estimates chastised Baltimore Development Corp. over an agreement to pay a downtown real estate developer more than double the standard real estate commission for selling a city property. The five-member estimates board agreed Wednesday to pay Otis Warren/Svatos Real Estate Resources $46,063 for its work in selling 7 acres at Seton Business Park to the Baltimore Association of Retarded Citizens (BARC). City Solicitor Thurman Zollicoffer challenged the payment because BDC agreed to pay the commission on the asking price of the property rather than on the sale price.
