LAGRANGE – An elevator is keeping the new LaGrange County Justice Building grounded for now.
A short circuit that fried a mother board in the elevator control circuits is delaying the move to the new building.
Building Department Superintendent Jason Boggs told county commissioners repairs were made but another inspection must follow. State inspectors were busy at the state fair last week, but Commission President Larry Miller says and inspector is due in Lagrange on Thursday.
The commissioners authorized Miller to sign the certificate of substantial completion with the contractor outside a public meeting.
A change order to allow H & M Construction to do concrete work for curbing and street cut repairs won approval from the commissioners. The amount of the work was $8,275.
Also this week the commissioners authorized Emergency Manager Don Wismer to apply for a Homeland Security grant of $29,810 to equip an emergency operations center at the jail in Lagrange. The current EOC is based in Topeka. Wismer said the move would allow the center to be centrally located in the county.
