The land would become part of Cunningham Falls State Park.
Thurmont officials will be deciding whether or not to sell over 400-acres of land to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
Mayor Marty Burns said a few years ago the state made of offer to buy the land but was turned down because the offer was too low. Recently the state offered over $1-million for land that he describes as hilly and rocky.
"We've asked, what do we use this for, nothing. People hike up there and they will still be able to hike up there it's a state park. People hunt up there and they will still be able to hunt up there."
Burns said he does not see any negative aspects with this sale and the money will go to 10-years worth of capital improvements to the water system.
"So instead of having to raise rates on the rate payers, to pay for 10-years worth of projects that need to do, or want to do, to improve the system, there will be 10-years that we don't have to."
Tonight town officials will vote whether or not they want to sell. The land would become part of Cunningham Falls State Park.
