Join your County Executive Johnny Olszewski and Councilman Wade Kach for a town hall discussion on the county budget and share your thoughts, ideas and priorities with the new administration. This is part of a series of conversations across the county.
The Baltimore County Council will hear public testimony on legislation (Bill 102-18) proposing a 9 month industrial solar moratorium in Resource Conservation Zones on January 15th at 2pm.

This event would allow many of our members, friends, and neighbors from the Northern area of Baltimore County, a chance to meet many of the candidates that would represent us in both Local and State matters.

This meeting will replace our normally scheduled meeting which would normally occur on the following day.
Our meeting is scheduled for Monday, May, 7, 2018 at 07:00 PM, and will be held at the Summit Manor Hall, 510 Monkton Road, Monkton, MD 21111. (This is to the rear of the Hereford Volunteer Fire Co.)
