GREENFIELD – The Hancock County Board of Commissioners and the county council will hold two public hearings on financing for the criminal justice complex, which includes construction of a new jail.
The first meeting is slated for 7 p.m. Monday at the Hancock County Courthouse Annex, 111 American Legion Place.
Residents are invited to weigh in on the project, estimated to cost $55 million. The commissioners have proposed paying for the project with bonds, which would likely impact property and income taxes.
The second meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 12 at the same location.
While the meetings are being set to conduct public hearings, both boards can act on other business too, county attorney Ray Richardson said.
