Public safety is the top priority of the Ball Administration. To that end, the county executive and his administration continue to negotiate in good faith with property owners who received an official offer under the previous administration.
These properties, along with any other buildings that may be in imminent danger, will be assessed by a structural engineer to ensure their stability and integrity. Acquiring the buildings is just one step in a long recovery process for Ellicott City, and the administration continues to explore all options regarding next steps for the buildings once acquired.
