There's not much the City of Westminster can do about truck traffic through a narrow alley that runs past Schaeffer Lumber Co. to West George Street, a two-member City Council committee has concluded.The Public Improvements Committee's decision to take no action left Gloria and Richard MacPhee, who own a rental house at 20 W. George St. next to the alley, "a little nonplused," the couple said in a statement.Mr. and Mrs. MacPhee of Finksburg had asked the council for help in October. They said their tenants in the Westminster house are inundated with diesel fumes and noise from truck traffic that begins at 7 a.m. and continues throughout the day.Truck traffic through the alley includes tractor-trailers that deliver supplies to Schaeffer Lumber Co. and flatbed trucks that pick up items from the company's materials storage yard, which adjoins the alley on the opposite side of George Street.
