George Arlotto this week became the third Anne Arundel County superintendent in as many years submitting a capital budget proposal - but he said working within the school system for 10 years helped him hammer out the $163.4 million request. "Not a lot of changes were made, based on what we've done in the past and where we're headed in the future," said Arlotto, who was the system's chief of staff before becoming superintendent in July. Arlotto replaced Mamie Perkins, who served as an interim superintendent for a year while the school district sought a permanent replacement for seven-year Superintendent Kevin Maxwell.

In a letter Tuesday to Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, school Superintendent Dallas Dance said he had agreed to drop the plan to renovate the former Loch Raven Elementary School and put an addition on the Cromwell Valley Elementary School.

Last Friday, Kamenetz announced that he would not fund the proposals the school district had made for the two schools because the cost estimates had risen substantially.

Busch told city lawmakers they should be "upset" that the Senate budget conferees took $2.5 million from the capital budget that was earmarked for planning a new convention center in Baltimore.

"I just don't understand what the senators from Baltimore city were thinking," he said, referring to the city lawmakers on the conference committee. "You are putting in tough votes, and you are going to lose the convention center," Busch said.

The Annapolis City Council adopted a $96.5 million operating budget early Tuesday morning that lays off seven employees, increases a tax on businesses and increases some parking fines. The budget also eliminates the Annapolis Economic Development Corp., which was created in 2010 to attract and promote businesses in the city. The agency's funding, which was $450,000 this year, will run out at the end of the month as the fiscal year ends. Businesses could pay up to $150 more per year due to a 17 percent increase in the personal property tax, which is a tax on equipment and merchandise that's paid by all businesses, according to Brian Woodward, acting city manager.

Gov. Martin O'Malley released a $37 billion spending plan Wednesday that for the first time in recent years contains no drastic cuts or proposed tax increases. Amid a stronger economy, O'Malley also proposed to boost the pay for state workers, expand tax credits for some high-tech industries and set aside more money to clean up the Chesapeake Bay. "These have been challenging years to say the least," O'Malley said. Since the onset of the recession, the state has raised income taxes for the wealthy, increased taxes on alcohol and cigars, expanded gambling, shrunk the state workforce and cut projected spending, among other moves, to close a structural budget gap that once stood at nearly $2 billion.

Not on the operating side, where Mr. Neall basically maintained the status quo in a fair, non-controversial spending plan, but in a capital budget highlighted by expensive, contentious projects.The council already is living up to expectations, with some members objecting to the cost of a new county courthouse and others vowing to fight the location of a new county jail.
