Historic Flag Presentation at War Memorial
Friday, October 03, 2014
DGS Director Steve Sharkey and Historic Properties Manager Jackson Gilman-Forlini recently joined Jeff Buchheit of the Baltimore National Heritage Area to present Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake with the first of several 15-star, 15-stripe commemorative flags to be flown over municipal buildings during the recent Star-Spangled Spectacular. The first flag was deployed at the stately and historic War Memorial.

“Preserve the Past, Maintain the Present, Build a Sustainable Future!”

The Department of General Services (DGS) was created on July 1, 2009, having been a division of the Department of Public Works. DGS endeavors to make the City of Baltimore a leader in municipal energy efficiency, an innovator in the application of technology and a sustainable steward of government and community resources. And, our team saves taxpayers nearly $6 million each year through energy efficiency projects.

The Department of General Services has five divisions which provide services to City agencies and residents of Baltimore:

Fleet Management

Fleet Management effectively manages the City’s vehicle operations and facilities.

Facilities Maintenance

Facilities Maintenance provides efficient operation, maintenance and improvement of City owned buildings.

Design & Construction/Major Projects

Planning, Design and Construction provides the design, engineering, management and inspection of City-funded construction projects and manages property records for all properties located within the city limits.

Energy

Energy monitors citywide energy use and the development of energy-efficiency improvements to City facilities

Right-of-Way Services
