New Windsor Town Council went into executive session last night to discuss whether Councilman Paul G. Garver is still a town resident and could keep the seat he won in 1999, after a tied election. Garver, whose residency became an issue after a letter appeared in the Carroll County Times during the holidays, joined the mayor and council in the closed session. Garver, 50, whose family has lived in New Windsor for generations, declined to comment before the session. Councilman Neal Roop made a motion to keep the meeting open, but it failed for lack of a second.

Charlotte Lubbert came to Edgewater from Crownsville on Wednesday with two issues in mind: pollution flowing into the Severn River and speeding boaters she expects to see on the water on the Fourth of July. She wanted to take her concerns to the top, so she waited in line to speak with County Executive Laura Neuman at a community outreach session at South River High School. "I'm absolutely thrilled with her and her approaches," Lubbert said as she waited to speak with Neuman.

The executive board of a union that represents about 10,000 state and university workers in Maryland has dismissed its executive director, but he is contesting the decision. Ron Bailey, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 92 for the past two years, confirmed yesterday that the union's executive board voted not to renew his contract at a meeting Oct. 11. The contract expired Tuesday. Bailey said he will take the issue to arbitration because the board failed to honor a clause requiring that he be given 90 days' notice before termination.

Traveling on the public tab is one of the perks of being an elected official. With the fiscal constraints in most counties, cutting travel expenses makes a great deal of economic and political sense. Whatever the Carroll County commissioners gained economically by sending only one of them to the bond rating houses in New York, however, they lost politically in their handling of the matter.Instead of sending all three commissioners to make presentations to the major bond rating agencies this week, Commissioners Donald I. Dell and Elmer Lippy Jr. decided that only one commissioner would make the trip.

Nine days after meeting with Maryland's Open Meetings Compliance Board about conducting business in public sessions, the Carroll commissioners held a private meeting concerning a planned $14 million water treatment plant. A legal expert said such a meeting, at which the commissioners decided to mail a brochure detailing their rationale for constructing a water treatment plant on Piney Run Reservoir near Sykesville, must be held in public session. In addition, the Maryland open meetings law requires the commissioners to meet in public session to discuss legislative decisions - those that make or change laws.

The Carroll County Board of Education will meet in executive session tonight to discuss the search for a permanent superintendent to lead the 28,000-student system. Board President C. Scott Stone said he intends to invite the newly elected board members who will take office in January, to join the discussion. The other board members are Gary W. Bauer and Susan W. Krebs. "It made no sense to me to wait until January," Stone said. "Six months is a very short time to do the type of search I think the board is interested in doing, so we might as well use the remaining weeks of 2000.

The County Commissioners voted 2-1 in a secret meeting Thursday to kill a black and tan pit bull that attacked a 10-year-old Westminster girl last month, biting her on the arms, stomach and groin.The commissioners' closed-door action came as a surprise to county attorneys, who expected to be present when the vote was taken.Shortly after an emotionally charged, 73-minute hearing Thursday afternoon to determine the dog's fate, the commissioners had said the vote would be postponed at least a day. Commissioner Richard T. Yates had wanted to view a three-minute videotape showing the child's injuries and a 36-square-inch bruise across her stomach.
