Baltimore liquor board executive secretary Nathan C. Irby Jr. agreed yesterday to resign from his position as head of the state agency and collect about $40,000 in back pay and benefits rather than proceed with a potentially lengthy appeal in city Circuit Court. The settlement between Irby, a former state senator and city councilman from East Baltimore, and the liquor board was reached minutes before Irby was to challenge his March 24 termination before Circuit Judge Stuart R. Berger. "The net effect of the settlement is that Nathan Irby is no longer the executive secretary of the liquor board," said Gerald Langbaum, an assistant attorney general who represents the city liquor board in legal matters.

Staff at the Maryland Transportation Authority on Monday recommended full approval of a proposed rate structure for express toll lanes being installed on Interstate 95. The proposed structure would allow for rush-hour commuters to pay nearly $5 a day in tolls for use of the lanes, which will run parallel to the highway's non-toll lanes along a seven-mile stretch north of Baltimore. The lanes are set to open late next year. The recommendation follows a public comment period and three public hearings on the proposed rate structure, after the MdTA board approved it in September.
