The Office of the Inspector General is conducting an investigation of the Department of Public Works.

According to multiple reports, investigators were spotted carrying boxes of files outside City Hall that were taken from disposal yards on Bowleys Lane and Reedbird Avenue.

Inspector General Isabel Mercedes Cumming told Baltimore Fishbowl it is an “ongoing investigation involving DPW and it doesn’t have anything to do with [former] Mayor Pugh.”

There’s no timeline yet for when Cumming’s office will issue a report.

“We have a lot of documents to go through,” she said.

DPW spokesman Jeffrey Raymond said, “We’re offering our full cooperation.”
