(ATLANTIC) The Cass County Board of supervisors approved a proposal for provision of a courthouse space needs study from Carlson, West, Povondra Architects at their meeting this morning.
The discussion about a space needs study began when officials with the 911 Center requested moving the center to another area of the courthouse. The Supervisors agreed that a study needed to be done to identify the long term needs for every area of the courthouse.
“I think for the com-center’s sake, it’ll be a much more complete study and give the com-center additional options, it’ll just be beneficial for everybody,” said Chuck Rieken, Supervisor.
“It goes beyond the feasibility of the move, it goes to basically whether there are spaces that could be better utilized,” said Dale Sunderman, Auditor.
The study will cost $3,800 with an additional $500 for a heating, ventilation and air conditioning study.
In other activity, the Supervisors held their 2nd and final hearing, and then approved, an amendment to Ordinance No. 28, division of taxes levied on taxable property in the Amaizing Energy Urban Renewal Area.
