Weather permitting, the Baltimore City Council will meet at 5pm today. Today's scheduled meeting of the Baltimore City Council has been rescheduled because of today's winter weather; it's now set to take place on Monday, March 10, at 5pm.

On the agenda: the so-called “ban the box” bill, a measure imposing limited bans on smoking at city parks, and confirmation of Niles Ford to be the city’s new Fire Chief.
