LAGRANGE – Site work began Monday on the new LaGrange County justice building just west of the courthouse in Lagrange.
County Engineer Sarah Farlow said site work was delayed by a guy wire from a utility pole extending onto the property. The project is about two weeks behind schedule.
Council Vice-President Mike Strawser wondered if effort was being made to use local contractors on the project. County Surveyor Rex Pranger said he has talked to Kinder & Sons about that.
"I game them a whole list of different people - vendors here in the county - and they're going to get quotes. So we're giving them an opportunity."
