S. Carroll projects to get state funds

April 06, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The state Board of Public Works approved expenditures yesterday for two projects in South Carroll.

The three-member panel, consisting of Gov. Parris N. Glendening, Comptroller William Donald Schaefer and Treasurer Richard N. Dixon, authorized $3.5 million to begin design work on the academic and administrative sections of the Maryland Public Safety Training Center in Sykesville.

Classrooms, offices and dormitories will be housed in the Hubner and `T' buildings, part of the Warfield Complex at Springfield Hospital Center.

Restoration of the buildings will complete the $45 million center. A driver training course is operating adjacent to the hospital, and a shooting range is about to open.

The board also voted to reimburse Sykesville $232,700 for its expenses in planning development at Warfield. The town annexed the 138-acre property with 14 century-old buildings, which were wards at the hospital, a year ago.
