Norman County Commissioners Still Exploring Highway Building Proposal Options

Ada, MN — The Norman County Board of Commissioners continued their discussions around the proposed new county highway building at their meeting on Tuesday morning. The board examined the four different proposals, which would cost between $232,000 a year and $468,000 a year on a 30-year bond. All the proposals consisted of a building constructed with precast cement walls, which are more expensive than your standard than your standard steel shop you may see at a farmstead. Norman County Board Chair LeeAnn Hall says the board wanted to look more into that option and if it was feasible.

Hall says moving forward they’ve invited the architect to present to the board and also come up with a fifth, middle of the road proposal as well.

The Norman County Board of Commissioners hope to be able to make a decision with the highway department building proposal once they have all the requested information from the architect. They meet next on Thursday, March 18th.
