Lisanti questioned what might happen with future road improvements in the area.

"I think it's safe to say there are public concerns that there are improvements needed to that intersection," she said. "If we transfer ownership and then we have to go back and do road improvements, would we possibly have to buy rights-of-way from them?"

Chance said those are questions she would look into.

Civil engineer Darryl Ivins presented the water and sewer plan update for the fall, which includes two proposed developments asking for water and sewer access.

Hamilton Reserve would have 69 single-family homes on 28.5 acres near Benson, between Connolly Road and Mountain Road, with water demand of 20,700 gallons.

The county is also asking for water and sewer use for a project called Ann's Meadow, which would put 20 single-family homes on 6.1 acres on Thomas Run Road, about 400 south of Prospect Mill Road.

Ann's Meadow would have water demand of 6,000 gallons per unit.

Also at the meeting, the council recognized J. Arch Phillips, E. Francis Lynch and Harold E. "Hap" Smith as Harford Living Treasures.

Boniface offered belated condolences to the family of Leonard Wheeler, the school board president who died recently.

"He was a good man and I think everybody should know that," he said. "I am going to miss him a lot and I think the school board is going to miss his leadership."

Beth Poggioli, president of Greater Fallston Association, thanked the council for keeping Youth's Benefit Elementary School in the out year budget last May.

She said she hopes the state can still set aside some funding for Harford County's schools.
