Woodbine firm selected to do grading work


A. G. Parrott Co. will do the paving and grading work at Carroll Fields development in Sykesville.

The town, acting as the contractor, will oversee the work in the 60-home subdivision along Second Avenue and pay for it with the $240,000 public works bond it revoked from the developer B&H; Investments of Eldersburg last month.

B&H; failed to meet three town-imposed deadlines -- the last on July 1 -- and forfeited its bond. Incomplete work includes final road surfaces, sidewalks, landscaping and fencing a storm water management pond.

The developer also had agreed to build a hiking trail and tot lot but has not done so, town officials said.

Parrott, a Woodbine contractor, offered a $53,000 bid, the lower of two for the job, which includes the final street paving, repairs to curbing, and sidewalks and grading the tot lot and hiking trail.

"Parrott has consistently done good work for the town," said Mayor Jonathan S. Herman.

The town will advertise for a landscaping bid this month. The agreement calls for planting about 400 trees.

Plans call for completing work on the storm water pond next spring, but town crews will surround it with a temporary fence soon.
