Baltimore County Council OKs $78M help for Tradepoint Atlantic

The Baltimore County Council voted Monday evening to give Tradepoint Atlantic up to $78 million to build roads, water lines and sewer pipes at the old Bethehem Steel mill in Sparrows Point that the company is redeveloping.

Council members approved the deal unanimously, with multiple members saying they were comfortable spending the money because they’re confident it will help lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs.
