Commissioners continue road closing discussion

Carroll commissioners agreed yesterday to continue a discussion about closing part of Kays Mill Road at a public works meeting next Tuesday.

Commissioner Elmer C. Lippy said he promised some residents of Kays Mill Road, in the Finksburg area, that he would get more information about the road closing before making a decision.

Some residents objected at a public hearing May 13 to a county plan to close 1,300 feet of Kays Mill Road to realign the road near the 2300 to 2400 blocks.

The residents also objected to the realignment.

County officials said the realignment has been in county plans since the late 1970s.

Zoning board OKs extra mission beds

The Carroll Board of Zoning Appeals yesterday approved a request from the Westminster Rescue Mission to add eight beds for the mission's alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

The Rev. William M. Correll III, mission director, testified at a hearing at the County Office Building that the program currently serves 30 men and usually is full.

The mission, on a 39-acre farm at 658 Lucabaugh Mill Road, operates a six-month program to help men break their addictions to drugs or alcohol, Mr. Correll said. The mission also runs a 10-week halfway house program.

"You deserve a lot of help in the dedication you're showing to this cause," zoning board chairman William Law said.
