ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

With an Aug. 29 deadline to get a $3 million referendum vote for an Emergency Communications Facility on the November ballot, the Washington County Supervisors tabled action until next week after chairman Abe Miller kept saying he was “uncomfortable” with an estimated figure.

Miller said he wanted a professional to provide information, although supervisors Jack Seward Jr. and Richard Young had met with professional architects from Newmann Monson and had an estimate ranging from $3.1 million to $4 million.

As result, the board agreed to a work session from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., Monday, Aug. 27, which will allow for a vote on the referendum resolution at the Aug. 28 regular meeting.

Sheriff Jared Schneider noted that someone from Carl A. Nelson, the already hired project manager, “are professionals” and likely could attend the session.

Seward had presented findings from the meeting with the architects last week, offering a high estimate of $4 million for a possible 7,500-square-foot building to $3.1 million for 6,800 square feet.
