Updated 8/29
Unable to find a suitable private contractor, town officials say the center will be operated by the town government.
The news is here.

The Herndon town council voted last night to continue the operation of the day-labor center, but not to renew Project Hope and Harmony's operating contract. Now the council will renew the heretofore unsuccessful search for a new operator who will pledge to check workers' immigration status. The story is here.
