SYKESVILLE BAR IS BOUGHT
The Howard County government has bought a South Carroll bar for $225,000 and is eyeing another watering hole nearby, butthe county isn't going into the tavern business.
Howard County officials want the bars and the site of an old apple butter factory nearby for the land.
The county hopes to create a 10-acre river-frontpark on the Howard County side of the south branch of the Patapsco River, with picnic tables, a tot lot, restrooms and possibly a gazebo,said Ronald G. Lepson, assistant to the Howard County public works director.
The park project, intended to complement Sykesville's Main Street revitalization plan, is expected to cost more than $1.5 million, he said.
"I'd love to see green space there at the entrance to the town," Sykesville Mayor Lloyd R. Helt Jr. said. "I know that's Howard County's plan, and we were aware that it was moving forward.
"The bars were an institution, and we didn't have too much problem with Duke's, but the other one had some problems we became aware of and we were usually the first to respond."
The county bought the River Bank Lounge on old Route 32 in Sykesville last month and is negotiating to buy Duke's Place, an adjacent tavern, he said.
FEE CONSIDERED FOR USE
County officials are considering the adoption of a uniform community use plan and fee scale for county-owned public buildings.
Civic groups and organizations throughout the county frequentlyapproach officials about using the buildings, but until now, have usually been turned away because there is no one to open and secure thebuildings when needed.
One exception to that has been the South Carroll Senior Center, which has been used by area groups because a center staff person who lives nearby was willing to open and close the building, said Jolene Sullivan, director of the Department of CitizenServices.
