BALTIMORE — Recognize our communities share borders, but they're just lines on a map.

That's what Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said about a regional town hall meeting.

The meeting was first of its kind, bringing people from the city and the county together.

"Often times, especially communities that are close to the jurisdictional lines, if we're not coordinating, if we're not partnering, we're missing opportunities," said Olszewski.

The town hall was hosted by Baltimore County Councilman Izzy Patoka and City Councilman Isaac Yitzy Schleifer. They work together on things like public safety, transportation, environmental issues, and more.
