With Election Day almost here, on Tuesday, November 8, you may have questions about ballot Question A. Here are the facts:

Question A on the November ballot would make one simple change to streamline the organization chart in the executive branch of Harford County government. Currently, the county’s property management division reports to the director of procurement, who reports to the director of administration.  If Question A is approved, property management would report directly to the director of administration.

There are no other changes proposed by Question A.

The director of administration would continue to report to the county executive, and decisions about the purchase, sale or lease of property would continue to be made by the county executive.  In addition, all legal checks and balances regarding property and procurement will remain in effect. This includes approvals by the Board of Estimates and the County Council.

Please contact Citizens Affairs at 410-638-3420 if you have further questions.
