How will the existing building on Meyer Road be used?

The county does own 41 buildings of various shapes and sizes and wants to consolidate its overall footprint. If a vacated property can be sold, it will be sold, as we have no desire to hold on to empty buildings. Money from the sale of county properties is deposited into the county’s General Fund and County Council would decide how it is then used. It has not been determined what departments or county functions may be relocated to the 2911 Meyer Road facility.
