About 40 Eastern Shore chicken houses collapsed under the weight of the recent snows, and now the Maryland Department of the Environment is giving farmers the option to burn the wood debris instead of hauling it to the landfill. The several feet of snow that fell in Maryland during the storms last month damaged or destroyed at least 41 poultry houses at 29 locations, said Sue duPont, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Agriculture. The average chicken house has about 30,000 birds, duPont said, but not all the houses had birds in them at the time of collapse.

Like most Marylanders and American taxpayers, I have grown tired of government workers never being held accountable for the job they are hired to do. Who were the city engineer and city official who decided to park tons of cars on the side of a street that was supported by a 100-plus-year-old retaining wall ( "Mayor meets with residents over E. 26th Street collapse," Aug. 17), and do these employees still work for the city?

City and CSX Transportation maintenance crews did not do a good job responding to repeated complaints from residents about street damage on the Baltimore block that collapsed in the spring, according to the city's transportation director and a report reviewing previous inspections. The city of Baltimore issued the report Sunday analyzing the April 30 collapse of a stretch of East 26th Street after massive rainfall. The report noted that neither CSX nor city maintenance crews who responded to several resident complaints about the roadway before the disaster had the expertise to identify the surface issues as symptomatic of a larger failure of the street's subsurface.

Residents of East 26th Street in Charles Village are seeking compensation from the city and CSX Transportation for damages suffered when they were displaced from their homes by a landslide in April that sent half their block crumbling onto railroad tracks below. The residents have hired teams of attorneys at three law firms, who have asked the city and railroad operator to meet them at the negotiating table or see them in court. They contend they should have been at the negotiating table when the city and CSX hashed out an agreement to split the cost of fixing the street.

The city of Baltimore and CSX Transportation have agreed to split the cost of rebuilding the one-block retaining wall that collapsed along East 26th Street in Charles Village, ending months of negotiations over who was responsible and how much taxpayers would cover. City officials said Monday they expect the collapse to cost taxpayers about $7.5 million - though the total could increase as construction continues - and CSX would pay the rest. The entire project is now expected to cost about $15 million, down from an initial estimate of $18.5 million.

The Baltimore Board of Estimates on Wednesday approved a nearly $12 million contract for construction and repair work to replace a block of East 26th Street that collapsed amid heavy rains in Charles Village in April. The contract covers a substantial portion, but not all, of the costs associated with the bizarre incident. The collapse occurred after a stone retaining wall holding the block of East 26th Street between North Charles and Saint Paul streets above a cut of parallel CSX Transportation railroad tracks gave out, sending half the block and more than a half-dozen parked vehicles down into the tracks.

Now Cohen, 39, faces the biggest fight of his life - his company, Indemnity Insurance Corp., was seized by regulators, and federal agents said in court documents that he appears to have been plotting to attack a judge.

City officials promised to cover the financial costs to the Charles Village residents displaced by the collapse of East 26th Street, and that tab now sits just shy of $100,000, city officials said Thursday. It will continue to grow, as well, even though the residents are back in their homes. The costs — mostly for hotel rooms for the residents of the 19 homes that were evacuated — are in addition to the city's $18.5 million estimate for the street's reconstruction, said Caron Brace, a spokeswoman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, whose office released the figures.
