County officials closing in on new annex building


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — After two years of debate, a decision will be made this month on constructing a new Bartholomew County Annex building. That's part of a timeline calling for groundbreaking a year from now.

A three-member Bartholomew County Council subcommittee will present the full council with its recommendation April 22 on how much money should be spent to replace the structurally failing 86-year-old building near State and Mapleton streets, and how the project should be funded.

That subcommittee — consisting of council members Ryan Lauer, Jim Reed and Rob Kittle — has already gathered individual spending limits from all seven council members that each is willing to support.

Please read Thursday's edition of The Republic for more details.

Don't settle for a preview.
