TOWN OF CAPITOL HEIGHTS
The Capitol Heights Town Council at its Nov. 26 meeting agreed to allow Mae's Beauty Salon to continue operating in the rear of the town police station at One Capitol Heights Blvd. The council last month voted to force the salon to move out of the building to give the nine-member police force more space. Council members said another location for the beauty salon will be sought but it will be allowed to stay in the police station for the time being.
The Capitol Heights Town Council will hold its next meeting at 8 p.m. Monday at Town Hall, One Capitol Heights Blvd. It will be the only meeting for the month because of the holidays. CITY OF COLLEGE PARK
The College Park City Council at its Nov. 27 meeting voted to restrict parking on Roanoke Place, north of Berwyn Road, on the north side only because cars were unable to pass through the narrow street when parking was allowed on both sides. The measure takes effect immediately.
The council also approved a portion of a proposed hiking/bicycling trail that will run through College Park. The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has proposed building the trail alongside the Metrorail Red Line from Union Station in Northeast Washington to the Silver Spring Metro station on Colesville Road. The trail is intended to connect hiking/bicycling trails from other jurisdictions. In College Park, the trail is to run alongside Route 1 for 1.7 miles. TOWN OF EDMONSTON

The Greenbelt City Council at its Nov. 26 meeting passed legislation giving Greenbelt homeowners a tax credit for any increase in their annual property taxes greater than 10 percent. The move follows recent passage by the Prince George's County Council and the Maryland General Assembly of legislation giving tax credits to county and state property owners whose property assessments increased more than 10 percent over the previous year. Previously, under the state's Homestead Property Tax Credit program, homewoners whose annual assessments increased more than 15 percent were due a tax credit.
The council also voted to offer city employees health insurance through one health maintenance organization, Health/Plus New York Life Co., rather than allowing them to choose from a variety of health benefit plans.
Council members cited a revenue shortfall and budget cutbacks facing Greenbelt as the reason for choosing the new less-expensive plan. City employees will be covered under the new plan beginning Jan. 1. The city will pay 85 percent of the health benefit package and the employee will pay the remainder. Previously, the city was paying an average of 89 percent of each employee's health plan. CITY OF LAUREL
