Shoot to Kill: Baltimore ranks as most lethal among nation's largest cities

Jones to attend first Arundel council meeting after sentencing

The Anne Arundel County Council will hear from the public at its meeting tonight on a proposal that would levy a new fee on county residents designed to reduce and more effectively manage storm water run-off along the Chesapeake Bay.

The measure, proposed by Councilman Chris Trumbauer, would impose a $35 annual fee on residential property tax bills and $25 on condos and town houses; nonresidential properties would be assessed depending on square footage.

Trumbauer, an Annapolis Democrat, estimates the fee would generate about $10 to $12 million annually.

The Council is also scheduled to vote on a comprehensive zoning bill for the Pasadena and Severna Park areas.

The meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. in the council's chambers in downtown Annapolis, will also mark the first Council meeting since Councilman Daryl D. Jones, a Severn Democrat, was sentenced to five months in federal prison for failing to file his taxes. Jones has said he will attend.
