County Building

Posted: Updated:

Discussions over the new Ward County office building continued today as county commissioners met to discuss more ideas for the space.

At the moment, construction documents are being completed in order for the board to open up bidding for the future administrative building.

The board plans to open bids to contractors next week.

No decision has been made on the exact size of the building as of right now.

Architect Don Davison says adding a fourth floor to the building is one of several alternate options still on the table.

(Don Davison, Architect, JLG Architects)"It was discussed with the commissioners that that will be an alternate. We'll take an alternate price on it to see what that extra cost might be. That is one of the primary larger alternates we're taking. We're probably taking about a dozen of them at this point."

Davison says the board will receive the bids on the afternoon of August 15th and hold a meeting the following day evaluating the bids.
