(LE MARS)–A South Sioux City construction firm is forming the foundation of the Plymouth County Courthouse Annex building.
H-C-I is the general contractor for the office, storage and emergency shelter under construction on the Courthouse block.
County Supervisor Craig Anderson says things are starting to take shape.
Construction on the 637-thousand dollar project began in August. The project cost will be reduced by a rebate of sales tax and an 85-thousand dollar state grant for the shelter portion of the project.
The new building will house driver’s license, juvenile court staff, zoning, environmental services, economic development, an emergency shelter, a specialized computer room and have a garage.
When construction is complete in about April of next year, a metal storage building on the east side of the Courthouse parking lot is expected to be sold. The equipment and materials stored in the building will be in the north part of the Annex Building.
Construction at 225 Fourth Avenue Southeast is on ground that was the Sheriff’s office, Communication Center and Jail. The public safety services were relocated to 14th Avenue East and opened in August of 2003.
