Adair County Calling for Special Election on Bond for Courthouse Elevator

adair county courthouseLast November the Adair County Board of Supervisors approved a special election to consider a bond referendum for a courthouse elevator project. That election is now just three weeks from today.

This election is a result of a feasibility study conducted in August of 2016. The results from the study concluded that the courthouse would need a new elevator at an estimated cost of $556,000. The County has already collected $600,000 off a bond sale from last May. However, all five bids for the project came in well above the $600,000 limit, with the lowest just shy of $750,000. Thus, the special election will call for a bond not to exceed an additional $650,000.

Earlier this month the Board also approved informational meetings beginning Thursday in Bridgewater, Orient, and Fontanelle. Greenfield’s will be at the County Courthouse Courtroom on February 22nd at 7pm. Stuart will hold their meeting at the Legion Hall on February 27th at 7pm and Adair will conduct theirs at City Hall the following day, February 28th at 6pm.
