Supervisors approve garage plans, receive update on HIPAA compliance

Plans to construct a new parking garage on county property near the new annex building moved forward during Monday morning’s regular board of supervisors meeting.


Custodian Mark Jungling brought in an estimate that will likely cost the county somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000, and because it falls under a specified amount, the supervisors do not need to go through the traditional bidding process. Precision Lawn Care is set to expand a retaining wall by approximately 50 feet to the east, and Shay Wical and Spahn and Rose are the other two contractors listed in the proposal.


An additional expense will eventually be incurred for electrical and concrete work. A motion to approve the plan carried unanimously.
