Baltimore federal offices reopen Wednesday
Tuesday - 10/30/2012, 3:48pm EDT
The Federal Executive Board in Baltimore, which makes decisions about federal office closures in that city, has recommended that federal agencies in Baltimore reopen Wednesday — with unscheduled leave and telework options in place.
The General Services Administration said federal buildings in the Baltimore area would be operational and there are no reported power outages, according to Richard Howell, executive director of the Baltimore FEB. There are, however, a few water-drain problems, which are now being corrected, he said in an email.
The Office of Personnel Management is expected to announced the operating status of federal buildings in Washington, D.C. for Wednesday later this afternoon.
OPM closed D.C. federal offices both Monday and Tuesday because of the storm. FEBs in New York, Philadelphia and Boston also shuttered federal offices in those cities the past two days.
In an exclusive interview with Federal News Radio Monday evening, OPM Director John Berry said the agency would take into account the possibility of flooding and power outages in any closure decisions.
