While a new, larger Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center is under construction, Howard County's primary homeless shelter will move to a two-story cottage on the grounds of the former Taylor Manor Hospital in Ellicott City. Andrea Ingram, director of Grassroots, a private nonprofit agency, said the move likely will occur about Oct. 20, a week after the groundbreaking for the new, expanded shelter next to Atholton High School. Demolition of the current building should begin in November, and the new 55-bed building should be completed in a year.

In an unusual meeting marked by technical and legislative delays, the Howard County Council postponed annual action last night on charts that control the pace of development around crowded county schools, approved a lease for a halfway house for drug abusers and killed or tabled several other controversial measures. The meeting began a half-hour late because of last-minute confusion over the school/development charts. Partial failure of the council's sound and cable television system also contributed to the delay.

Maryland regulators granted Taylor Manor a 19 percent emergency rate increase yesterday - less than the 93-year-old Ellicott City psychiatric hospital wanted but enough to keep it open pending a more thorough review early next year. The temporary increase falls short of the 29.7 percent the hospital said it needed to prevent its closure. But state officials determined that it, combined with potential changes in how Medicaid reimburses hospitals, may boost Taylor Manor's 2001 revenue just enough to keep it in business.

The state's hospital rate-setting commission approved yesterday a 19.2 percent increase for Taylor Manor and began a contentious debate on setting statewide hospital rates for next year. Taylor Manor, an Ellicott City psychiatric hospital, had said it was in danger of closing without an increase. Even with the rate increase approved yesterday, which applies to commercial insurers, the hospital's future is uncertain unless the state also raises Medicaid rates, said Dr. Bruce Taylor, the hospital's chief executive.

A series of zoning law changes that would make it easier for Howard County's citizens to gain equal footing with developers may have died an ugly death at Monday night's County Council meeting, but reincarnation appears imminent. Despite the partisan bickering during this week's voting session on 45 amendments to a long zoning revision bill, a bipartisan trio of councilmen plan to craft the measures into a new bill. The new measure would be reviewed by the Planning Board before a council vote in several months.
