Prince George’s building to be closed

The Prince George’s County’s Administration Building in Upper Marlboro will be closed to the public Monday while officials try to clean up ground-floor damage from last week’s flooding, which brought up to two feet of water into some parts of the facility.

The county government is expected to operate fully from other office space, spokesman Scott Peterson said.

He said that employees who work on the ground floor should report to work Monday in the Upper Marlboro building to help retrieve material from their offices. The County Council, which meets on the first floor and has offices on the second floor, did not have any damage but has temporarily moved to offices in Riverdale.

Air conditioning and elevators are not fully operating in the administration building, Peterson said. Although the Upper Marlboro building houses several offices, including the county executive’s and council offices, most county agencies are in Hyattsville, Largo and elsewhere.
