A decision by the Baltimore City Council on a proposed redistricting plan presented by Mayor Brandon Scott will come down to the wire. Council President Nick Mosby recessed the council’s committee hearing on the proposed map Friday without taking a vote to advance the mayor’s plan or presenting an alternative. That means the council will now need to take three votes — one in committee and two of the full council — on a plan Monday if it hopes to thwart a potential mayoral veto.
