Sykesville sells land on Route 32

Sykesville has sold a strip of land at the intersection of Sandosky Road and Route 32 to Allen B. and Charlene Gillis for $2,000.

The Gillises of Marriottsville own a small shopping center at the corner and wanted the site, which is about a third of an acre, as a buffer zone.

"It was a burden to us to maintain," said Town Manager James Schumacher. "They are going to use it as a landscape buffer. They will be planting there soon."
