Baltimore Co. Council to Vote on Legislation Expanding Crackdown on Unruly Parties

The Baltimore County Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the expansion of a program meant to crack down on unruly parties near Towson University.

The county enacted a pilot program last year for some neighborhoods near the university. The bill set for a vote would expand the areas covered to West Towson, Rodgers Forge, Loch Raven Village and Knettishall.

The ordinance applies to gatherings of four or more people that cause “substantial disturbance of the peace.” Landlords can face fines and the loss of their rental license if their tenants are repeat offenders.

Also on the agenda is a resolution to establish an 11-member commission to review the county’s charter.
