BV Supervisors Set to Readdress Future of Colorize Building

The Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors at their meeting tomorrow (Tues) are scheduled to readdress the proposed selling of the former Colorize building.

The county purchased the building last year for 340-thousand dollars after Auditor Sue Lloyd recommended that the county obtain the building with the idea of moving the auditor/election departments there, and to make it easier to store and transport voting equipment. In March on a 3-2 vote, the Supervisors approved a resolution to propose the sale of the building due to concerns about the potential relocation of the auditor’s office, equipment, and which county departments might occupy the building. A couple of the Supervisors say they were under the assumption that the building was purchased to determine the best possible use for it, and not necessarily for the auditor.

A public hearing was held at the Supervisors meeting two weeks ago, and the County Facilities Committee discussed the matter last week. The BV Supervisors are scheduled to continue discussion on the future of the Colorize building and possibly take action at 9am tomorrow (Tues) in the Supervisors Boardroom at the Courthouse.
