County may replace county annex building with new construction


Follow The Republic:


There is a break at the Bartholomew County Annex. And this time, it's not the plumbing.

Consensus is building to replace the structurally failing 86-year-old structure, a topic that has been considered off and on for 20 years.

But over the past two years, as physical condition of the building near State and Mapleton streets has worsened, elected county officials have made the issue a high priority, but have been at odds over how best to proceed.

Bartholomew County commissioners have pushed for construction of a new facility. County Council members, however, have first wanted to explore renovation or retrofitting other existing buildings.

But Bartholomew County Commissioners and members of the County Council now both support the idea of seeking financial assistance from the Cummins Foundation to cover architectural fees for a new building, Commissioner Rick Flohr said.
