The Herndon Town Council last night voted to continue running a taxpayer-funded day-laborer center while town officials continue to negotiate funding with Fairfax County and review a proposal for a new operator that will check workers' legal status.
Mayor Stephen J. DeBenedittis said after the vote that nothing about the center or how it is operated will change until Sept. 14, when Reston Interfaith"s two-year contract expires.
"That'll play out over the next few weeks, but again it"s important to note that nothing changes tomorrow," Mr. DeBenedittis said.
