April 10, 2002|BY SCOTT BUTKI

A contract for a company to start removing hazardous materials at the Baldwin House complex for what will become the University System of Maryland Hagerstown Education Center is expected to be awarded in early May, a system official said Tuesday.

The contractor, which would also shore up the complex in downtown Hagerstown, would be expected to start work soon afterward, said Mark Beck, University System capital planning director.

The $870,000 for that work is in this year's state budget.

The $716 million capital budget passed by the Maryland General Assembly on Monday included $12.4 million for work on the education center.

Renovation work is scheduled to begin in July, Beck said.

The first classes would be held in January 2004, he said.
