I just read the editorial in The Aegis entitled "Grateful in Joppa." We were until the county executive had a bill introduced May 7 that put a damper on our elation. Bill 13-22 has a paragraph in it that is very upsetting. It's the very last paragraph and reads:
"Harford County intends to reserve the property located at 814 Philadelphia Road, Joppa, Maryland for future solid waste and recycling needs. A study will be performed in 2013 to determine the uses, which may include the development of a second homeowner drop-off facility and a yard trim drop-off facility. If the study finds land will be available on the property for other uses, consideration will be made to public safety infrastructure needs of the nearby community."
Councilman Dion Guthrie is trying to get this removed from the bill which will have a public hearing on June 4 at 7 p.m. I would encourage you to contact Mr. Guthrie for further news about this. Thanks.
