Quotes Needed for Curbing, Carpeting at Annex Buildings in Knox

Quotes will be obtained to replace the curb along the west side of the Starke County Annex No. 2 building on Pearl Street in Knox.

The Starke County Commissioners previously asked Maintenance Director Jim Coad to talk to the City of Knox to see if they could apply for 50/50 funds to replace the curb, but Coad learned the city is just awarding funds for sidewalks at this time. Commissioner Kathy Norem noted that Coad will gather quotes for the curb project.

In the meantime, Coad is also expected to gather quotes for the replacement of carpet in the auditor’s office and the surveyor’s office in the Starke County Annex No. 1 building. A malfunctioning sprinkler system damaged the auditor’s office a few months ago. The carpeting in the offices is the original material from when the building was first built a few decades ago. The carpeting was replaced in other areas of the building over a period of time.
