Harford Executive Signs County Stormwater Fee Repeal

A January 27 Baltimore Sun article reported that Harford County Executive Barry Glassman has signed legislation repealing the County’s state-mandated stormwater remediation fee. Collections would end on June 30, the end of the current fiscal year.  The fee repeal legislation was unanimously passed by the Council on January 20.  From the article:

Joining Glassman in his office for the bill signing were Council President Richard Slutzky and council members Patrick Vincenti, Curtis Beulah and Jim McMahan.  …

Last week, [Glassman] noted the county would not abandon its responsibilities to reduce runoff going into the bay, but would take another approach to funding such initiatives, a point he also made in his December inaugural address. …

Cindy Mumby, Glassman’s spokesperson, said Friday the county executive intends to use general operating revenue to fund the stormwater program’s administration in future budgets and also will include a capital expenditure component in the 2015-16 county budget he submits in mid-April.
