Hauling out boxes of “Healthy Holly” books and documents, dozens of federal law enforcement agents struck offices, homes and government buildings across Baltimore as an investigation into Mayor Catherine Pugh’s business dealings widened. FBI agents and IRS officials raided Pugh's office.
She has been on paid leave this month, citing a need to recover from pneumonia.
Other charter amendments to be introduced next week, according to an agenda posted online Friday, would allow council to decrease the number of votes needed to overturn a mayoral veto and give members the authority to add money to the city’s operating and capital budgets. Currently, the council can only subtract money from the mayor’s spending plans. Another proposed amendment to the charter would create the position of a city administrator.
If approved by the council, the charter amendments would go before voters for their approval in November 2020.
