Sykesville Town Council moves meeting site to St. Paul's UMC


Officials have changed the location of tonight's Town Council meeting on Main Street changes to accommodate the large number of residents expected to attend.

The session begins at 7 p.m. at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 7538 Main St.

First on the agenda is a discussion with State Highway Administration on Route 851, the town's major thoroughfare. The town is considering making the highway, which is both Main Street and Springfield Avenue, a municipal road.

Officials are seeking public comment.

Ownership of the 1-mile segment would give Sykesville authority over the street, which defines its downtown. But it comes with costs, such as maintenance and snow plowing.

The town budget will also be introduced. Officials propose maintaining the property tax rate at 76 cents per $100 of assessed value.

Information: 410-795-8959.
