County OKs new office complex

A schematic drawing of the proposed approximately 17,000-square-foot structure shows the building to be one-storied on the front and two-storied on the back. It will house the offices of the county superintendent of education, the Marshall County Extension Service, the driver’s license office, the office of Veterans Affairs, the WIN Job Center and the Forestry Commission.
Dollars now being spent to rent other buildings for these uses will be saved, according to supervisors.
The March 15 meeting was dedicated to Eddie Mae Lucas, office manager and a long-time employee at the sheriff’s department. Lucas died Monday morning while the meeting was being conducted.
