Reprieve urged for city jobs cut in budget


The Annapolis City Council's finance committee agreed yesterday to extend for two months the work of three city employees whose jobs were cut from the budget for the fiscal year that begins today.

Miguel Ferrer, the economics development coordinator; Tom Roskelly, the public information officer; and Anne Mannix, a public information specialist, would be allowed to stay on.

The finance committee's recommendations will be presented to the entire council July 11, but the employees will continue to receive their pay in the meantime.

City Administrator Michael Mallinoff asked the finance committee to grant the job extensions. He said Mr. Roskelly, who was on vacation when the budget was adopted last week, needed more time to consider an offer for another city job at lower pay.

Mr. Mallinoff said the mayor wants to keep Mr. Ferrer so that he can continue to work on the city's bid to attract the Whitbread Round the World race and other maritime development projects.

It would cost the city about $12,500 to extend the salaries of the workers until Sept. 1.

The jobs of several other employees were cut from the 1995 budget, but those cuts do not go into effect until Jan. 1, 1996.

Man exposes himself to clothes saleswoman

Police are looking for a couple whose prank at an Annapolis clothing store Wednesday afternoon included the man exposing himself to a saleswoman.

The pair had asked the saleswoman to help select some accessories for the man.

The saleswoman helped the two pick out a vest, tie, belt and socks. The man then went into the dressing room.

A few minutes later, his partner asked the saleswoman if she would give her opinion on the outfit.

The man came out of the dressing room wearing the vest, tie, belt and socks -- and nothing else. The saleswoman ordered the couple out of the store. The man hurriedly dressed, and the two ran out of the store.

The woman later returned and asked two saleswomen if either wanted to have sex with the man.
