Harford County cannot auction off three small public buildings in downtown Bel Air even though it cannot use the vacant structures without costly upgrades, officials said. By a vote of 4-to-3, the County Council denied a proposal to sell as surplus the adjacent structures at 29, 31 and 33 West Courtland St. across from the courthouse. "I am fully aware that these are older buildings," said Councilman James V. McMahan. "But to surplus them now at a time when we desperately need space would not be prudent."

Harford County officials hope to auction three small public buildings in downtown Bel Air, rather than pay the high costs of renovating them. Although the county is experiencing a severe crunch for office space and will likely have to negotiate pricey leases for new locations throughout the county seat next year, the buildings on West Courtland Street, across from the courthouse, are inadequate for present needs, officials said. "They are two-story, very narrow and not accessible" for the disabled, said Deborah Henderson, county director of procurement.
