(ODON) - The Daviess County Council and Commissioners will host a town hall style meeting tonight concerning the construction of some type of courthouse annex to alleviate space issues at the current courthouse.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Odon Community Building and another on Monday, March 14th at the Montgomery Ruritan Building at 6 p.m.

Lamar and Associates Architect and Design will present conceptual designs and plans for building onto the Old National Bank building downtown which is owned by the county or building a new structure at 3rd and Hefron adjacent to the courthouse. There are two options for both locations. Both would house the Assessor, Auditor, Recorder and Treasurer offices. Both could or could not include a central dispatch center. The health department could be located in the new structure and there was an option of having the Purdue Extension offices in the buildings. Total cost ranged from $6 to $8 million based on what location and which option.

When all public comment is gathered and evaluated the commissioners and council will decide what way if any to go. Sprinkle says he wants some type of decision by the end of this year.
