Supervisors Approve Building Purchase

The Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors this week approved the contract and down payment to purchase the county attorney’s building at 606 Geneseo Street.

The county has been paying rent for the facility, which is owned by county attorney Dave Patton, who isn’t seeking re-election this November. Last month, the Supervisors met in closed session to discuss the purchase… and agreed on a price of 150-thousand dollars, with a five-thousand dollar down payment. The county will close on the purchase January third.

Last month, building and grounds superintendent Joe Keller told the board he has received bids for fire alarms and emergency lighting for the building, and indicated some electrical improvements are needed.
