County Board Highlights

Update on Jail Construction, Veterans Services Hire

Construction fencing has been removed at the Washington County Court House – in the area where the new justice center is under construction.

In an update to the county board this week, Matt Cavanaugh with Weitz Construction says grading, railing, new paving and retaining walls are expected to start this coming week, though rain has caused some delay.

Also at the county board meeting, Veterans Services’s Dennis Cordle is retiring. A committee narrowed down the candidates for his replacement to three, and selected Fort Calhoun native Ed Lathrop as his replacement.
