2 more weeks to demolish an eyesore

Anne Arundel County has given Pasadena businessman Tom Redmond two additional weeks to tear down the Brick House Bar in Lipin's Corner.

Mr. Redmond, who operates a salvage yard on Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, won a $1 contract this summer to demolish the Mountain Road eyesore by mid-August.

County spokeswoman Louise Hayman said the county has extended until Sept. 10 the deadline for Mr. Redmond to complete the project, which already is more than half complete.

The project has been delayed because Mr. Redmond encountered more debris and material inside the building that can be recycled than was previously anticipated, Ms. Hayman said.

Mr. Redmond, who also is president of the Pasadena Business Association and a candidate for County Council, said he bid $1 to expedite the demolition and to win county approval to build a gateway sign, welcoming visitors to Pasadena, on part of the cleared site.

Mr. Redmond's competitor bid $42,793 to knock down the condemned building.
