Urges Citizens To Support Town Beautification Effort

July 27, 1967

To Citizens of Sykesville:

How can we make our town more attractive? What does our town need?

The sad fact is that we have become so accustomed to things as they are that we go about our daily affairs without seeing how bad things really are. Waste water running down our streets, overflowing cesspools, disintegrating old sheds, junk cars sitting around and vacant lots overgrown with weeds and scrub bushes. All of these can be corrected by interested individuals.

May I call your attention to Ordinance No. 58 of the Town of Sykesville, Section 1: “It shall be unlawful for any person to throw, drop or deposit upon any of the streets lanes, alleys or highways within the corporate limits of Sykesville any garbage, wastepaper, tin cans, empty bottles or any other items or refuse whatsoever.”

Section 2: “And be it further erected that any person convicted before a Trial Magistrate of Carroll County of violating the provision of this Ordinance shall be fixed not more than one hundred ($100.00) dollars, and in default of payment of such fine and costs, shall be committed to the jail of Carroll County, until such fine and costs are paid, but not to exceed the period of sixty days.”

Adults and children who obey this Ordinance will certainly contribute to the beautification of our Town.

A vote of thanks goes to the following business establishments: The Quincy L. Morrow Co., for tearing down the dilapidated structure on Norwood Avenue.

To Charles Gaither, for a general clean-up around the Gulf Station.

Who will be next?

Thelma C. Wimmer,
