Greene County is building a new operations center, and Monday it awarded the bid to construct it. Six area companies responded to a call for bids, and the winner was Branco Construction, with a $3.387 million bid—nearly $600,000 under the original estimated budget for this portion of the project, according to the county.
With site prep, data lines, temporary utilities and equipment the entire project is expected at approximately $5 million.
The Greene County Operations Center, which will be located at 1210 N. Boonville, will bring together a variety of services for the county, including janitorial and maintenance, print shop, microfilm, mailroom and central supply. Those services are currently at several locations. The Operations Center will be an approximately 17,500-square feet, two floor building with loading docks and warehouse space.
