The temperatures Monday didn't call for heavy coats. But cold weather is right around the corner, and some Aberdeen children are in need of coats and winter apparel. Patch is here to help.

After two successful coat drives in Havre de Grace, Patch reached out to Harford County Public Schools to learn that Aberdeen children may be in need of winter coats, hats, gloves, etc. this winter. After a quick text exchange with Mayor Michael Bennett, the coat drive was underway. Starting Tuesday morning, donate your coats and other winter items in the lobby at Aberdeen City Hall.

Aberdeen Mayor Michael Bennett proposed a fund for the more than $2.5 million settlement.

Between 2004 and 2005, Aberdeen's water well field was contaminated by a gasoline spill, according to Mayor Michael Bennett. After the city paid more than $3 million for cleanup and mitigation of the spill out of its own water fund, it filed suit. The city recently received a $2,577,140.33 settlement, and Bennett said the ordinance he introduced at Monday's meeting would create a "revolving loan program" with it. Through the program, the city could use the money to repair aging infrastructure—namely water and sewer projects—while also setting aside future …
