The following were among actions taken at Tuesday's meeting of the Montgomery County Council. For more information, call 217-7900.
CHARTER REVIEW COMMISSION -- A commission charged with reviewing the county charter recommended that the council be subject to a 60-day deadline for overriding a veto by the county executive.
Currently, the charter does not limit the time period in which the council must act to override a veto, making it possible for the council's action to be delayed for years.
Even if a a 60-day deadline were adopted, a veto late in a county executive's term could be subject to an override vote after the election of new council members. The commission did not address this issue in its report, but council members said it should be considered.
The council must decide whether to put the commission's recommendation to voters in the November general election. All amendments to the county charter are subject to a voter referendum.
Charter review commisssions are appointed by the council after each election to review the county charter.
A public hearing will be held at 7:30 p.m. June 28 on whether the commission's recommendations should be put to a vote in the fall election. The hearing will be held at the Stella B. Werner Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville.
DICKERSON INCINERATOR -- The council scheduled a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. June 26 to discuss final contracts for the planned construction of a trash incinerator in Dickerson. A landfill and incinerator are planned for the community in northwest Montgomery County, at an estimated cost of more than $300 million.
MINIMUM AGE OF LIFEGUARDS -- The council approved a bill lowering the minimum age of lifeguards at the county's public pools from 16 to 15.
The bill is intended to relieve a shortage of lifeguards.
