A committee studying the possible relocation to downtown of the Washington County Board of Education offices met for the first time Wednesday, but a possible location was not discussed.
According to School Board President Paul Bailey, the meeting at Hagerstown City Hall did not result in any recommendations.
The group discussed how the idea evolved into a proposal. "We talked about how we got to where we are now," Bailey said.
Last August, State Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, sent Gov. Parris Glendening a letter asking him to support the move, saying it would help revitalize downtown.
"Funding remains the major obstacle to moving this project forward," he wrote.
The governor asked the Department of Budget and Management to review Munson's request. On Jan. 24, a budget analyst wrote County Administrator Rodney Shoop asking for a description of the project as well as its costs, schedule and funding sources.
