A number of projects within Warren County and at the Courthouse were approved by the Board at the recent meeting, explains Chairman Mike Pearson:
“The building of a bridge in Ellison Township was approved. Also, we have been studying, and this is American Rescue Funds, the generator is questionable at the jail and the courthouse; essentially, we approved a generator contact to put a generator at the courthouse and the reason is because the courthouse power also feeds the jail, so one generator does both jobs. We also talked about potential masonry work on the courthouse. There was also discussion on the county farm lease. We will have a soil test done as soon as the crop comes out and then next month, we will advertise for bids for the county farm to be farmed.”
C&D Electric will be installing the generator at the Courthouse. Meanwhile, AT CO Masonry was awarded the bids for the east side main entrance, south side entrance, and the exterior stairs. Also, a new transport van for the Sheriff’s Department that was purchased is currently on backorder.
