CM Erik Cole asked General Services Director Whittemore at tonight's Public Safety Meeting whose call it was to leave the Metro Office Building containing MEC unalarmed. She replied that the decisions not to alarm the building were made by those responsible for construction: Real Property Services in the Office of Finance. So, as the party responsible for the lack of alarms, officials from Real Property Service (perhaps Assistant Finance Director Ken Maynard) should be appearing before this committee to answer questions about their decision not to alarm this and any other Metro Building that stores sensitive information. I also would like to know when General Services took over the building and why it did not consider recommending alarm installation to the Mayor when it did so.
