County drops bill for Sykesville on Spout Hill repairs

Carroll commissioners ended a dispute with Sykesville about repairs to Spout Hill Road yesterday by agreeing to forgive a $6,700 debt they said the town owed the county.

The debt was incurred in 1987 when the county made emergency repairs to the road, which has many potholes and connects Third Avenue to Main Street.

Commissioner Julia W. Gouge suggested that the board drop the $6,700 bill. The vote was unanimous.

The commissioners also voted to sign an agreement saying the county and town will split the cost for materials to repair the road, which again needs work, and that the costs will not exceed $5,000 each.

The agreement stipulates that the town will make any future repairs needed as a result of ground water, and the county will make repairs needed because of a break in the utility line.

"We've got a bargain there," Commissioner Elmer C. Lippy said.
