State set to buy property for court building
Maryland officials are expected to approve buying property on West Antietam Street for a new Washington County District Court building in mid-December, according to a state official.
The Board of Public Works will vote on Dec. 17 whether to buy the 29,280-square-foot lot at 36 W. Antietam St., which includes a four-story warehouse, said Lisa Ward, chief of acquisition and disposal for the Maryland Department of General Services.
Officials had said the matter might come up on Dec. 3, but that meeting was canceled, officials said.
The board must approve all property sales to state agencies and institutions. The board consists of Gov. Parris Glendening, State Comptroller Louis Goldstein and State Treasurer Richard Dixon.
