The project would involve an interior renovation of the council office building at 100 Maryland Ave., renovation of the first floor auditorium, new HVAC system and windows and improvements to make the building compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is projected to be completed by early 2017.

The total cost of the renovation project is just over $31 million.

The council had also considered moving its offices to the county-owned Grey Courthouse and Red Brick Courthouse after renovating space there, however the Government Operations Committee opted to go with the renovation project instead at its April 22 meeting.

The project had been up for discussion earlier last month but was pulled from the agenda. The county’s School Board President Patricia O’Neill had expressed her disapproval of the plan to renovate the council building if the Montgomery County Public Schools’ funding requests were not met.
