BOCC, NFCD agree on path forward for courthouse

Further, there is water in the basement of the building that is near electrical infrastructure.

County administrator Don Butler suggested any lease agreement define where NFCD can and can not be within the courthouse.

Commissioners also wanted county attorney Jeremy Novak, who was absent, to sign off on any lease contract, and Butler suggested a Monday meeting.

In the interest of more deliberation in the process, Bryan moved and commissioners approved – Commissioner Warren Yeager was also absent – a motion that allows NFCD to assume responsibility for monthly utility payments Oct. 1.

“That will keep the doors from closing,” Gaskin said. “We can work out a long-term lease. I need to make sure the building is safe for my employees, too.

“I’m excited about it. I’m ready to work on it. I’m glad they made the decision to move forward.”

Bryan’s motion included direction that NFCD will operate on a month-to-month lease for up to six months while the county and NFCD work through a lease agreement.
