9. PROPOSED COUNTY ZONING AMENDMENT – ELECTRONIC RECYCLING
Decision Required: Whether to move to support.
The Mayor and Council have been working with a potential tenant in the Cheverly Industrial Park in his efforts to establish an electronic recycling facility. Since the County Code does not list electronic recycling as a use, the lack of such listing precludes the use. The proposed amendment to the County Zoning Code would specifically list electronic recycling as a permitted use in the I-1 (light industrial) zone. The Town is being asked to support this legislation.
10. ADOPTION CAR-3-12 AMENDING THE REFERENDUM SECTION
Decision Required: Whether to move to adopt.
This Charter Amendment will require 20% voter signatures, up from 10%, in order to effectively bring legislation to referendum.
11. DISCUSION- WSSC CONSTRUCTION
Decision Required: None.
The Mayor has added this item to the agenda and will address.
12. APPROVAL MUTUAL AID AGREEMENT – MUNICIPAL POLICE AGENCIES

The Mayor and Council have approved such an agreement in the past with the County and they are being asked to join an existing agreement between: Hyattsville, Mt. Rainier, Bladensburg, Riverdale Park, Greenbelt, Laurel, University Park and Edmonston
13. INTRODUCTION O-4-12 REPEALING AND ENACTING THE ETHICS SECTION
