Comfort station to be built at Millard Cooper Park

February 13, 1997

A Hagerstown contractor will build a comfort station at Millard Cooper Park in Sykesville.

The Town Council received a $54,000 state grant to pay for the restroom. Officials reviewed 10 bids before awarding the work Monday to Buildall Construction Corp., which will do the job for $46,590.

The town will use the rest of the grant to run sewer lines under Springfield Avenue and hook into the Freedom sewer system. Construction should begin this spring and be complete by summer.
