Starke County Commissioners to Hear from Skillman Corporation Representative about Jail Construction

A representative of Skillman Corporation out of Merrillville will be in attendance at the Starke County Commissioners meeting tonight. After listening to a presentation from Scott Cherry last week, the Starke County Jail Committee voted to invite him to the Commissioners’ meeting to discuss jail construction and remodeling. Cherry oversees all operations from the Merrillville office.

Bob Chorba, who is the Senior Site Manager for Skillman, also appeared at the Jail Committee’s meeting last week. Bob, who is a resident of Starke County, has over 40 years of experience in the construction industry, and recently supervised the remodeling project at Oregon-Davis Junior-Senior High School.

Among the projects Skillman has worked on is the building of the Porter County Jail.
