Bill to bring 150 jobs to Middle River passes County Council

Baltimore CountyA bill introduced by Councilwoman Cathy Bevins allowing 150 new
manufacturing jobs to come to Middle River passed the Baltimore County Council with a unanimous vote at Monday’s Council Meeting.

Bill 21-18 Zoning Regulations – Cold Rolling Mills, adds the definition of Cold Rolling Mills to the Baltimore County Zoning Regulations.

Cold Rolling Mills produce thin sheets of metal often used to make beverage cans and other similar products by compressing aluminum stock between rollers.

By adding the definition of Cold Rolling Mills to the County Zoning Regulations, Empire Resources, Inc. – a distributor of value added, semi-finished metal products – will bring 150 manufacturing jobs to the former Worthington Steel site on Kelso Drive and Martin Boulevard.

“Introducing this bill to allow 150 jobs come to Middle River was a no brainer,” said Councilwoman Bevins. “After discussions with the community this legislation received the support of the Essex Middle River Civic Council and the Aero Acres Community Association. The
decision to bring quality manufacturing jobs to Middle River shows the meaningful investment private industry is making in the Sixth District and that our efforts at the county level, to grow the economy and create jobs are working.”
