Ocean Pines Association recently announced the closure of The Cove at Mumford’s to facilitate mold remediation efforts. Additionally, it should be stated that General Manager John Bailey had been considering the possibility of closing the facility in an effort at reducing operating losses in the current fiscal year.
The closure of The Cove at Mumford’s restaurant and banquet hall, located at 1 Mumford’s Landing Rd., coincides with Mr. Bailey’s evaluation of the overall food and beverage (F&B) operational approach. This comes at the Ocean Pines Board of Directors’ direction and includes the possibility of outsourcing the management of F&B operations.
Mr. Bailey is preparing a report and recommendation on the F&B operations, to include a recommendation for the Board to consider at the Jan. 27 Regular Board Meeting.
