Following a structural review of the Harford County office building at 212 South Bond Street in Bel Air, County Executive and MACo President David R. Craig announced the temporary relocation of the County Council, the Department of Public Works, and the Cultural Arts Board offices. Built in 1985 and purchased by the County in 1996, structural reviews of the building revealed cracking of the walls on the second floor of the three-story structure. Executive Craig stated:
“The actions we are taking are precautionary based upon the professional judgment of building and codes officials and engineers. As the owner of the building we are exercising due diligence to ensure the safety of the County Council, our employees and the public who frequents the offices at 212 South Bond Street.”
The County Council is being relocated to the second floor of the 18 Office Street property in Bel Air. For additional information and for locations of Council proceedings and Public Hearings please click here.
