Crofton board to consider budget, covenant issues WEST COUNTY -- Crofton * Odenton * Fort Meade * Gambrills


Crofton's police budget and neighborhood watch program will be two of the main topics on the agenda tonight for the Crofton Civic Association's Board of Directors.

Police Chief Deborah Bogush, who heads a four-member force for the special tax district, is expected to present a list of items that she may request in her budget for the next fiscal year.

The community, with a population of about 10,000, has a $580,000 annual budget. About half is spent on the police force, which supplements county police protection.

The Public Safety Committee met Thursday evening to discuss the budget, but Edwin F. Dosek, the association president, would not comment on the talks.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of the neighborhood watch program, which began last year, and a closed session to debate a legal issue concerning a basketball court that the civic association charges violates the community's covenants.

The Covenant Review Committee has made a recommendation on whether Crofton should take the homeowner to court, but members have refrained from making a public statement until after tonight's executive session.
