Barry said everything is looking good mentions that residents have been remembering to call and report, the county was out for two days sweeping our area,  and left tags on all of the offender’s doors. We were reminded to take pictures when we send in code violations, that pictures go a long way. If the person has an offense, and you take a picture they are more likely to get a fine because code enforcement has actual proof. Rather than coming out and it being too late. You can contact code enforcement at 410-887-3351 or online.

Are repaving in the Westfield area is complete all we need now is for the painted lines.

Kathy heard from the speed guy at traffic and engineering. he said they put up a two-day counter out, and the average speed was 23 miles an hour. (which is a lie) they claim it’s a Police issue not traffic and engineering issue.

Meeting Minutes 10/2/18

Published by:

Meeting starts at 7 PM with the pledge of allegiance. Officer Addair was absent and Officer Briggs was there in her place. He gave the crime stats for our area “there a 55 reports for the month of September: 52 traffic stops, 3 crossing details, 2 overdoses, 2 theft from autos, 3 destruction of property, 1 armed robbery, 1 theft of auto, and 1 narcotics.”

Open the meeting with City Council President Jack Young to talk about Holabird Avenue and Dundalk Avenue and try to work together to reduce crime on the city/county line. Jack Young Said “there should be no lines between the city and the County, that we need to find solutions to these problems to minimize the crime.” The police Deputy Commissioner Bonaparte. “Brought his whole team here to deal with the matters. This partnership is great. They work with the Baltimore County on prostitution and drugs and car theft. Captain Brown is new, but she’s working through issues with Baltimore County to solve problems in collaboration with the city and the County.”

Major Brown said “Thank you for the invite their number one goal is crime reduction in the South East industrial side. In June and July They met with DOT in the industrial corridor and had 24 cars towed. The lot that the cars were on had 3 fatal overdoses, there were prostitutes using drugs on the lot. And unfortunately died from it.”  The crime numbers on the city side were very low with 15 disorderly conduct, 9 narcotics, 2 robberies. They decided to do a foot deployment and walk to talk to the local business owners. They brought a drug sergeant in. Looking to see that the businesses were in compliance with their licenses and up to code. The district commanders Look for calls to service and there isn’t a way for the city to share their statistics with the county and vice versa.

We should find a way to coordinate statistics from the Southeast City and Baltimore County. We did learn that as a County resident, We cannot call 911 and speak to the city 911 dispatch. That if we are in the County our dispatch automatically goes to the County. But there is an app for the city. It’s called BPD app. You can download it on your phone and use it anonymously. Or you can send an email to

Senator Salling said that Graceland Park met with the council at a meeting with the police. To try to problem solve. And that he appreciated Dawn and Dave working with the community to bring the attention to the crime and inviting the city to discuss the matters.

John Melzer stated that the intersection that we’re talking about at Holabird Avenue and Dundalk avenue is not only high in crime but also covered in trash. Trash brings on crime. We need to keep our neighborhoods clean. It will help with crime!

Deputy Commissioner Bonaparte said that the squeegee boys have  plagued to the city for some time. They have a task force to deal with the boys, but they’re mostly juveniles young people trying to earn money. homeless people are doing the same thing, and if we are going to prosecute the squeegee boys. We need to also prosecute the homeless. It has to be fair. (everyone seemed to agree to this)

The Colonel said that September 10th at their council meeting. It showed that the database  # calls for service with problems pertaining to the squeegee boys. They couldn’t do anything about the calls because the people would call on the boys, and then leave the scene, so when officer got there, they couldn’t prosecute without a statement from the witness. We were also told that during school hours, There is a school daytime curfew in the city so they are using units at certain intersections to enforce curfews. We also need to find out why these kids are hanging out on the street. Some of it might be drugs and some of it could be because they are hungry. There is a real food problem in the city.

When people are soliciting and its aggressive soliciting or panhandling the police need an accurate description of the person they need you to stay at this scene to report it.

Jack young said “We want to look at other City/County line Crime and see how agencies in other areas work together. that way we can replicate their programs and open dialogue between City and County police sharing stats and solving these issues.”

The city has a police sergeant working on a drug unit from the City with the County at 100 Dundalk avenue on the line sharing info w/ the County, Graceland  Park has been seeing a lot of phone orders for drugs because they are a quiet area. 6 people for the whole district working in that unit. But they’re creeping into our area.

Delegate Ric Metzgar said that we need to reach out to the juveniles in a room and see what they want. They need love and positive role models, County and City should come together and put something in motion.

City Community leaders had an event in Druid Hill Park to hear about what residents concerns were and find out what plagues the community. We need to find the root cause and we need a sustainable effort to solve issues with Council President and mayor’s office.

Senator Salling said that there are a lot of homeless kids in our area that have no parents around who go to school and still manage but they need love and compassion. It’s a milestone that kids need to help them grow. He met them doing his missionary work with the church.

Sergeant Stelmack , said that there is a numbers game in Baltimore County that if we want action. We have to call in crimes and report as much information as we can to dispatchers. That way when an officer gets to the scene of a crime. The officer is completely prepared for what they’re about to find. And if we don’t report it then problems won’t be fixed.

Jack young stated that his focus is on officers collaborating to get rid of this stuff. It doesn’t matter city, County there should be no line. Major Brown is going to reach out to Captain Wiedeck to open communication between city and County. Jack Young said thank you to Dawn and the officers for being open to communication. Major Brown gave us her email address, so that we can continue to communicate.

Mike Yancura gave his Treasury report. We have $1208.72 in the bank there has been no purchases and no change. Unfortunately. Mike has to stop being the treasurer and we open the floor and asked if anyone wanted to be the treasurer and Kathleen Sladics volunteered. The floor voted unanimous. Yay!!! Special thanks to Kathleen for volunteering.!!!!

Hart miller Island trip is still an option, the boat launches from around Miller Island to Hart-Miller island, open to community associations. Doug Stanley, attending the meeting for Dun-Logan community stated that there is a giant tower. The West side is very nice. There’s a Lake and 8 Mile Trail and bikes to ride beaches, but there’s a lot of bay grass. And you can camp there for $5 a night.

John Melzer said please don’t blow grass in the road it’s bad for the bay and for motorcycles that grass to a motorcyclist is like a sheet of ice. We also stated that Baltimore County can fine a home owner Up to $1000 for anyone who is caught blowing grass in the street.

Linda Mooney stated that there was a traffic study done on railway and walnut and they got a letter that said that they did not meet the minimum requirements of traffic to do any kind of speed bumps so we’re going to get with her and try to help with this process.

Mike Belzner asked about the golf course at Sparrows Point Country Club to see if there was an update on Baltimore County planning from developer. We have not heard anything. We know it’ll be tied up for a few months pending approval.

Mike Yancura, a new treasurer voted in. Treasury report is $1511.23. $646.14 must be returned as part of the C.O.P. grant.

Barry states on Ives lane and Westfield Road. There are commercial cars, we cannot do anything. Advertising a business or not. Anything over 10,000 pounds is illegal. Anything under his legal. Cintas trucks are legal. Officer Addair can run any tag to find out the weight of a vehicle. Code season is just beginning more complaints this month, then last month  especially dog waste in the back yards. No word on Ives Lane Alley. Sheila and mikes friend Phil is in code. He may be able to help us.

Merritt Boulevard and Westfield Road accidents. State Road-not a County road. State says it will take 90 days to do this study. April 17th. We should have a word on what is being done. The light sensor at Holabird and Searles road is broken. We have emailed them multiple times. There’s no word yet. Mike Yancura to call traffic in engineering about the traffic camera.

As far as the no soliciting for our community. There is no change. We need special permit signs to put in the ground, it’s a very bureaucratic process. No place to put our own signage. If someone is soliciting they would have to have a permit sunrise to sunset.

David Rader went to Towson to protest the Sparrows Point Country States. They said an amazing amount of community input was considered in this process, but they did not mention the petition that Richard Davis took in his community protesting this development. It is a PUD development. Which means that there is a community benefit that supposed to be given to local communities but they forgot a lot of local people.they also forgot to mention the traffic that it would add to our already over Crowded streets, they did not donate any money to the volunteer firefighters or the Police Department in our local community. Nor did they mention the overcrowding in the schools that we have already. and where are they gonna put the children that are gonna be living in the 320 plus houses that they are about to build! They did, however, give money to Todds Inheritance, which is state owned building. They also forgot to mention the environmental issues that building on this property is going to have on our community. Our friend Russell Donnelly has worked for 30 or 40 years with Chesapeake Bay restoration and the Critical Area Boundaries protecting the environment from the hazards left behind from the steel mill among waste from other sources. Those toxins are in the land and water that this development will be stirring up.

This PUD has also donated money to Patapsco High School for their athletic field to be Astro turf. We called the athletic director at Patapsco and he said he will not bar people from using the field; like Dundalk high school did after they rebuilt. You must pay Park & Rec for usage.

We do have welcome packets for new neighbors in our community. If you need one please reach out and let us know. We will gladly get one to you. Our community clean up is April 7th at 1 PM. Ives lane is in major need of cleaning the alley has a lot of debris and broken concrete from a remodel. ( A special tank you to John Melzer for cleaning that up!) A House on Ives Lane sold for $150,000 and it’s not an end of row.

There was a fish study done by the Maryland Department of environment that recommends we do not eat many of the fish that come out of the Bay.

Tradepoint Atlantic’s plan to dredge is building opposition who are making sure they do things properly and safely with all of the pollution and health hazards under control. Paid experts and volunteer experts have 2 different opinions on this study. We asked for the blessing to write a letter for environmentally friendly support and it was unanimous.

Barry is representing us on April 9th at the PCRC meeting for NHCA he represents our area and will update us on topics he learns about while there.

We would like to welcome Ed and Diane our new faces.
