Two offices in the Grant County Courthouse will be moving to new quarters after a vote by the Quorum Court recently.
According to the Sheridan Headlight newspaper, the county tax collector’s office and the assessor’s office will relocate to the old First Baptist Church which was purchased by the county last year and has been renovated.
Grant County Judge Rady Pruitt said the revenue office will locate to the same building and much of the building will also be used to store county records.
Along with the renovations, Grant County also bought an adjacent piece of land and will convert it to a parking lot with nearly 100 parking spaces.
The 17,000 square foot building was purchased for just under $100,000 and Pruitt said the county was able to use inmate labor from the Department of Corrections to demolish much of the inside of the building before renovations began.
