Catching Flak from a Determined Council Member, Scott Defers Action on his Vacant House Pricing Plan

At 9:07 this morning, as the Board of Estimates meeting was getting underway, a letter was emailed by Mayor Brandon Scott to Odette Ramos and other members of the City Council.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to proceed with the fixed pricing policy being heard at the BOE today and plan to implement it as I continue to work with urgency to address Baltimore’s vacant housing crisis.”

Forty-five minutes later, however, Scott was singing a different tune.
