Anne Arundel County Council passes resolution stripping power from administrative staff, council chair: ‘This is a travesty’

February 7, 2024

The Anne Arundel County Council passed a resolution Monday night stripping power and autonomy from administrative council staff and the council chair. The resolution, 4-24, makes all seven council members supervisors over council staff and allows members to raise administrative matters for a vote if they disagree with each other on a decision. In the past, administrative decisions, such as when and how to draft amendments, were made by council staff, and personnel decisions, like granting leave, were made by the chair.
