A newly formed D.C. agency that consolidates the city's capital projects and maintenance duties under one roof should benefit the District financially, but its team must act quickly to justify the faith of city legislators who stepped "out on a limb" in support of the endeavor, council members said Tuesday.
While some wrinkles still need to be ironed out, D.C. Department of General Services Director Brian J. Hanlon said the garden center could stay open anywhere from six weeks to nine months.
Mr. Hanlon said the agency is ready to transmit major contracts to the council in the coming weeks, including design and build contracts for Dunbar and Cardozo high schools and Turner Elementary School.
