I'm not surprised to have read in The Aegis of July 12 that another attempt is being made to incorporate the Town of Edgewood. I am sure the town 's citizens don't want to take on more taxes an fees that come along with an incorporation, such raising taxes for town police and fire departments, neither of which will solve the problems that plague Edgewood. Those taxes and fees, however, would heavily burden the town's people, who already suffer under the weight of too many taxes passed by the Democrats in Annapolis in the last seven years. I don't think the people of Edgewood should have to be more burdened with something that just makes no common sense at all. In short, the incorporation of Edgewood will make matters worst for all citizens, especially those who have to pay for it. I say enough is enough. No incorporation for Edgewood, now or ever!
On another subject, I am writing in support of a new Walmart at the Bel Air South location. It makes good sense to build a new store in a larger location so citizens of Harford would have much easier access to it. The traffic in the present location is simply a nightmare, very difficult to get in an out of since the only entrance is too close to main traffic signal, an this is allowing very dangerous incidents which could possibly happen. I am tired of having to drive Aberdeen to get what I need since the Abingdon location is too small to stock much need food items. A new Walmart at Bel South would save time, gas and money and provide the citizens with more shopping power for their hard earned dollars.
