After receiving no public comments after moving into a public hearing, the Board of Supervisors approved the resolution to purchase the former Wayne County Senior Citizen Center building for one dollar during their regular meeting on Sept. 7. Following the approval to acquire the building, Wayne County Public Health Administrator Shelley Bickel informed the board she would begin working on bid request for the renovation of the building to allow Wayne County Public Health to move into the new site.

Bickel noted potential contractors would meet with her at the location on Tuesday, Sept. 21 to further discuss renovations needed. She also added that she would begin the application process for a USDA grant that could potentially match up to 55 percent of the funds needed for the renovation project.

In other business, Wayne County Engineer Randy Zerr informed the board the 28E agreement with the City of Corydon and Wayne County, regarding the courthouse and courtyard was presented to County Attorney Alan Wilson and Legal Counsel for Corydon, Verle Norris, to allow finalization of the agreement.

Zerr also noted pending weather conditions, the PCC Patching Project would begin on Wednesday, Sept. 15 with a completion date set for Wednesday, Sept. 29.
