Fines Increased and Lawsuit Tossed

On Tuesday night, the County Council voted, at Executive Leopold's insistence, to pass a bill which raises the fine for constructing a shed, deck, pier, or entire home without a permit to $500/day. The bill comes largely in response to the ongoing situation at Little Dobbins Island.

In similar news, Judge Paul Goetzke threw out the lawsuit the Magothy River Association (MRA) and five riverfront property owners had filed against the owner of Dobbins Island for erecting a fence on the beach that restricted public access. After the ruling, the attorney for the MRA expressed to the current owner that the Association is interested in purchasing the island. Keep posted for updates.
