The Mitchell County Board of Supervisors has tentatively approved the plans and specifications for the county services building/public health remodeling project.
A public hearing on the project is set for 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
The county is seeking construction bids on the project, which is expected to cost around $140,000.
During the Oct. 22 county board of supervisors meeting, Chairman Steven Smolik said the money for the remodeling project will be taken from a county fund for capital projects, which currently has $300,000 in it.

County officials decided remodeling the building was necessary due to concerns about HIPPA compliance, privacy and work efficiency.
The supervisors originally wanted to keep the project under $100,000 so they would not have to go through a bidding process.
However, they later realized the heating and air conditioning work alone would cost $40,000.
Bids from contractors will be opened on Nov. 14.
