Three homebuilders in the Baltimore area have agreed to pay fines to settle violations of building codes and state registration regulations, officials in the Maryland attorney general's office said yesterday. Timonium builder Joseph D. Fluri agreed to pay a $1,000 fine for not registering with the attorney general's Home Builder Registration Unit, authorities said. The fine settles a civil case against Fluri alleging that he falsified a landowner's certificate saying that he was building a home in Carroll County to live in, Assistant Attorney General Jeston Hamer said.

Caught short of road salt by last winter's continual ice and snow and hit with a blizzard of criticism as a result, Baltimore County plans to spend $1 million to triple its salt capacity by building four new storage facilities.The County Council is to vote Sept. 7 on a budget transfer to pay for building 42-foot-tall barn-like storage shelters in Woodlawn, Cockeysville and Perry Hall that each can hold 5,000 tons of salt. A 1,000-ton shelter would be built in Dundalk.Public Works Director Thomas Hamer said the county will pay a bonus if work is completed by Dec. 1. The transfer of $429,000 from other accounts will expand the amount the county originally had planned to spend for new salt storage.

The number of builders who have signed up with the state's newly formed Home Builder Registration Unit has exceeded preliminary estimates, according to the attorney general's office. "It is an awful lot -- 1,500, perhaps as many as 2,000 [ultimately] -- and it will give us the ability to deal with the things that we couldn't deal with before," Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. said last week. The unit was created last year by the General Assembly to register and track builders who operate in the state, which had not been done before.
