County Council Building Shut Down
The building has been deemed unstable by engineers, a source says.
The Harford County government building that houses the County Council at 212 S. Bond St. has been shut down until further notice due to concerns about the structure's stability.
"This building is temporarily closed," reads a sign posted on the front door of the building.
The building has been deemed unstable by engineers, according to a source who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the situation.
Council members and other building occupants were notified this morning at a meeting that they would need to gather their belongings and move to Harford County government's main headquarters at 220 S. Main St., according to the source. Council members were later relocated to 18 Office Street.
Tuesday's County Council meeting will be held at the board of education building.
The sign on the building also instructs visitors looking to contact the following other agencies located at the building to call the following numbers: Director's office, 410-638-3285; Water and Sewer 410-638-3300; Highways and Water Resources, 410-638-3509.
