(Atlantic) The Cass County Board of Supervisors approved leasing a portion of the property located at 707 Poplar Street in Atlantic to the Cambridge Law Firm following a public hearing this morning.
Last week the Supervisors approved the purchase of the building, currently owned by the Cambridge Law Firm, in the amount of $370,000. The Cass County Public Safety Commission and the Supervisors have been looking at options to relocate the 911 Center as they are in need of more room and there is no available space for expansion within the courthouse or the courthouse annex. Both boards are also looking into whether they should put the 911 Center in the lower level of the new building or put it in the basement of the courthouse and relocate the Assessor and Engineer’s Offices to the new building.
Attorney Dave Chase, with the Cambridge Law Firm, thanked the Supervisors this morning for their cooperation through the entire process.
“I think it’s a win-win situation for both parties here,” said Chase. “My experience with dealing with this now is I have no doubt that we’ll be able to get along just fine.”
The Cambridge Law Firm will lease the top level of the building and a small portion of the lower level.
