The Havre de Grace City Council Monday approved, by a slim margin, a city revitalization and development loan, or RAD, to Mary Martin Ltd., for an antique postcard and supplies business at 230 N. Washington St.
The $100,000 passed by a vote of 3 to 1. Councilmen Fred Cullum, Randy Craig and John Correri voted to approve the loan, while Councilman Jim Miller voted against it.
Councilwoman Barbara Wagner and Councilman Bill Martin excused themselves from voting and left the room.
The business receiving the loan is owned by Martin's sister and was started by his late mother. Wagner is the owner of another downtown business that has a RAD loan.
