Mitchell County Services Building

The Mitchell County Services Building which houses Mitchell County Home Health/Public Health, as well as other agencies. Space has become limited for the agency which wants to use additional space in the building.

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.
