WESTMINSTER - The city's Board of Zoning Appeals has approved the first day-care special exception since charging a $400 fee for the process, allowing a resident of The Greens to care for more than six children in her home.

Dolly Sentz, of the 600 block of Johahn Drive, said she plans to care for one more child two days a week since she received approval, the last step in a long process involving acceptance by the state Department of Social Services and the fire marshal.

Board members approved the increase in the belief that it would not adversely affect the neighborhood.

The board will hear its next day-care special exception -- Barbara Bowers, former president of the Carroll County Day-Care Home Association -- tomorrow morning.
