Carroll OKs money for pool in Frederick Co. SOUTHWEST -- Mount Airy * Woodbine * Taylorsville * Winfield

February 19, 1993

The Carroll commissioners yesterday agreed to let Mount Airy officials use $8,000 in county open space money to develop plans for a pool on the town's Frederick side.

The Carroll commissioners have told town officials that Watkins Park in Carroll County was not suitable for a pool.

Carroll County officials plan to build a school at the 44-acre park off Route 27.

"We would like permission from the Carroll County commissioners to use the money for a pool on the Frederick side," said Councilman David W. Pyatt.

"[The pool] would be in the confines of Mount Airy, and the money would give us the latitude to go look at other sites."

Commissioner Elmer C. Lippy asked if there were any legal restrictions on the open space money. Town officials and Frederick commissioners said there shouldn't be.

"Mount Airy is in such a unique situation," said Frederick Commissioner Sue Ann Yingling.

"I don't think you would have a problem [using the money]."
