White County Industrial Building Authority reactivated
By Dean Dyer/ WRWH
CLEVELAND - The White County Industrial Building Authority has been reactivated after a few years of dormancy.
The authority was pulled together Monday to approve a resolution that gives White County Commissioners the authority to proceed with the sale of construction bonds for the White County Detention Center expansion.
The first order of business at a meeting was the election of officers. James Staton was elected Chairman; Marc Greene, Vice-Chairman and Kendyl Brock Hunter, Secretary.
The board after some discussion about the resolution voted 3-1 for approval. Board member Cleveland Mayor Don Stanley abstained from voting because he has some concerns about the wording regarding the authority’s and the liability to the city. Stanley said he doesn’t have anything against the expansion plan.
The approval of the resolution gives the county commissioners the authority to sell up to $10 million in bonds for the work on the jail. The authority will need to meet again to approve the actual bond sale agreements and expects the bond sales to be made in March.
