BENTON – The Franklin County Board was updated about the construction at the Campbell Building on the Benton Square at Monday night’s meeting.
Offices are currently under construction for the County Clerk, County Treasurer and Circuit Clerk, as well as courtrooms. Once the new courthouse is completed, the Circuit Clerk and the courts will move back with the County Clerk and County Treasurer to stay permanently in the Campbell Building.
County Board Chairman Randall Crocker said the board hired Comm Squad of Lebanon, IL Monday night to wire the phones and date cables for the facility for $29,960.
Crocker added crews were set to pour concrete Tuesday on the deck of the first floor of the small addition to the building. An elevator will arrive on Dec. 11, with the roof to be added and finished after.
He said he felt he contractor will meet the Dec. 20 deadline for work to be completed and have the remaining offices and courtrooms moved from the courthouse to the Campbell Building by late January.
