Missing Documents

Although Baltimore County has posted extensive information online, and has received awards for their use of IT to benefit citizens, for some inexplicable reason, much of the information is removed from online after a couple years. While some might think that the County's computers are running out of space, this is not true, due to a phenomenon known as "Moore's Law", which says that computing power and storage space double every 1 1/2 years. Most of the data that is being removed is PDF files, which take up very little space anyway. For example, all of the files listed below that have been removed take about the same space as a couple photos that Code Enforcement has recently posting for illegal signs which they then failed to take action against anyway. In some cases, the data has not actually been removed, only the index page to get to it has been deleted, so citizens can't find it!

The documents that are being removed are by no means "old". In most cases, they are still valid for reference purposes.

Once I realized that the data was disappearing, and knowing that it may be impossible to get them to change their ways, I started downloading these documents for safe-keeping and, in the following, I provide copies, many back to 2007.

Note: The ones online for the Office of Administrative Hearings decisions are numbered by fiscal year of when filed and published by month when the order is issued, which makes it very confusing. In fact, the County staff got confused and has filed many under the wrong fiscal year. The Archives data below provides a single list of all, in numerical order, which can be searched.
