Baltimore City Council continues investigation into conduit deal following unorthodox approval

February 24, 2023

A Baltimore City Council committee investigating a management agreement between the city and Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. delved deeper into the deal Thursday night following a controversial move by Mayor Brandon Scott to force a vote on the agreement during a city spending board meeting. The committee, which was convened earlier this month, has the power to subpoena documents as it probes the deal, which calls for BGE to pay $134 million over four years for capital improvements to the conduit as well as a $1.5 million annual “occupancy fee.”
