ROCKVILLE, Md., September 20, 2013—The Montgomery County Council 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 23, will continue its series of informal meetings with elected officials as it hosts U.S. Senator Ben Cardin.

The Council will meet with Senator Cardin in the Sixth Floor Conference Room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave. in Rockville. The meeting is open to the public, but will not be televised.

On Monday at 2 p.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room, the Council’s Government Operations and Fiscal Policy (GO) Committee, which is chaired by Nancy Navarro and includes Councilmembers Valerie Ervin and Hans Riemer, will hold a worksession on Bill 11-12. The bill requires establishment of regulations to establilsh the process for the disposition of any real property owned or controlled by the County.

The GO Committee meeting will be televised live by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—Cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon). The broadcast also will be streamed through the County Web site at www.montgomerycountymd.gov.

Bill 11-12 refers to a sale, lease for a term of two years or longer or a lease that includes an option to buy. The law requires the County Executive to provide the Council with the material terms of the disposition (including the price or rent to be paid and any economic incentives involved). The Executive must also provide the Council with information regarding any appraisal that is being used to set the property’s market value. The information must be provided 30 days before the Executive asks the Council to approve a “declaration of no further need.”

The bill also states the Executive must not dispose of any property owned by the County at less than full market value unless the Council waives the requirement.
