That can be done, and some Fire Departments do, however they independently staff the SUV. That means, there are two crews; one for the fire engine and one for the SUV. If you don’t do that but instead use the engine crew to staff the SUV unit, what happens when they are returning from an EMS/medical call and there is a dwelling fire in the City; do they respond back to the station and get the fire engine, or do they respond to the fire in the SUV but without the tools they need to address a fire? Furthermore, it is not at all unusual to have multiple EMS calls in the City at one time; this could leave us in a position of not having any fire engine available in the City to respond to a fire.
The Fire Chief’s number one responsibility is the safety of our firefighters. One of the most dangerous places for firefighters to respond is on the roadway at the scene of a vehicle accident. Across the nation, numerous firefighters and police officers have been killed or injured on the scene of an accident after being struck by other vehicles. One role of the fire engine is to serve as a barrier between the traffic and first responders.Also, sometimes the fire engine/truck is the closest unit to the call for assistance and is dispatched as a first responder to begin assisting those possibly injured. Additionally, the following facts must be considered:1.Most 911 callers provide very limited information … I was just passing by and saw an accident and I cannot provide any further details.2.How do you describe a “minor accident”? – It is difficult to determine the extent of any injuries from just viewing damage to the vehicle.3.Is the “minor accident” the result of a medical event? Cardiac issue, stroke, drug overdose, etc. Units may arrive to find minor damage but a patient with a serious medical emergency.4.Is the vehicle leaking fuel or other fluids? (Environmental concerns)5.Is it a propane powered vehicle?6.Is it an electric car? Any movement? (Need to chock the wheels)The response of the fire engine addresses many functions on the scene of a vehicle accident.

The Fire Department does not issue permits.

The commission reviews plans for all exterior alterations to buildings in the historic district, including changes or additions to the rear of the property. If the plans are approved, then the applicant may apply for a building permit. The commission also sponsors historic site surveys and publications.
The staff reviews applications and advises the commission on matters related to zoning code and design guidelines. The staff also assists property owners in preparing their applications and administers the Certified Local Government program for the commission.
There are 3 types of historic districts. The National Park Service designates National Historic Landmark districts that have the highest level of significance in our nation's past. The park service also administers the National Register of Historic Places which designates historic districts significant at local, state or national levels.
Each state has an office which reviews nominations to the National Register and forwards them to the Keeper of the National Register for review and approval. However, the property owner does not require approval for alterations or demolition in these types of districts except in the case of federal ownership or federal licensing, funding or permitting. A locally designated historic district is an area with specific boundaries that has been designated as such by a municipality or a county. Exterior alterations and demolitions in this type of district must be reviewed and approved by the Historic Preservation Commission before a building permit can be issued. However, approved rehabilitation in all of these district are eligible for tax credits.
If you plan to make exterior changes to your property, you will need to apply for a Certificate of Approval from the preservation commission. And, the proposed changes will need to comply with certain guidelines. Your rehabilitation project could be eligible for certain tax credits at a state level. Because these properties are protected, their value usually exceeds that of properties that are not subject to review.
Determining a likely date of construction for an old house usually requires both documentary and architectural research. Documentary research that you can do yourself includes reviewing deed and probate information, tax records, and local histories. Your local historical society may also have other pertinent information as well as historic photographs.
Documentary research can be quite conclusive, but in some cases physical investigation will be necessary to supplement and/or corroborate the documentary evidence. The investigation of the architectural fabric may require a more trained eye and some technical assistance from a preservation professional.
All meetings are open to the public. If you are an Annapolis resident and are interested in serving on the Commission, please contact the commission.

If you are selling your home, the water service does not get shut off. A “Real Property Transfer Form” must be submitted to the City, with the accompanying fee, in order to transfer property from one owner to another. This form is typically provided to the Finance Department by a title company, lawyer, and/or representative who is facilitating the property transfer. After the “Real Property Transfer Form” is submitted to Finance and all outstanding utility amounts are paid in full, the property transfer can move forward. Once the original deed is brought to the Finance Department for recording, the utility account will be transferred to the new owner. Fees are in accordance with the annually adopted City of Annapolis Fee Schedule.
Please call the Finance Office at 410-263-7853 to verify the fee amount.

The full impact of the fee increase will not be experienced until your November 30, 2017 bills come out. Prior to that time, the increases will be phased in. For example, if your bill is for the period ending July 31st (May, June and July), then your bill will include 2 months at the old rates and 1 month at the new rates or 1/3 of the full impact. Assuming that your usage is constant, your bill would be roughly 30 percent higher than your previous quarterly bill.
