The Starke County Commissioners reviewed a proposal from the Skillman Corporation for plans for a new elevator at the courthouse.

The construction manager’s fee was set at $12,750 while another $32,250 was approved for other construction manager and general condition fees.

The construction of the elevator is expected to begin in spring 2018 and take three or four months to complete.

Starke County was the recipient of a $500,000 Public Facilities Program Grant and those funds will be utilized to replace the elevator at the Starke County Courthouse. The project will help the county meet requirements put forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new elevator will assist all residents in utilizing the offices on all levels of the courthouse.
