Grant County ,(Ben Caxton)—-That includes hiring a business to install an air ionization
system into the HVAC of the Grant County Courthouse to ionize the air supply of the building.
County Maintenance Director Garry Pluemer says the reason he proposed the project for the courthouse, is due to court proceedings you can’t regulate the people who go into the building as you can with other county government buildings
Air passes through ionization tubes on its way to common space areas, where the ionized air then treats contaminants as it encounters them.
Estimated cost of the ionization process to the courthouse HVAC is just under $30,000.
Like other CARES Act projects approved by the Grant County Board over the past two months,the work has to be completed and paid for by November 6th to be eligible for CARES Act funding.
Also approved were the purchase of more lap top computers for the Grant County District Attorney’s office, the Aging and Disability Resource Center, and the Clerk of Courts
office so they can work from a remote location.
Also submitted for approval was the purchase of a trailer for Grant County Emergency Government to use for COVID-19 public testing events.
That purchase still had to be reviewed by the Grant County Law Enforcement Committee on Monday (10/12).
The board gave County Board Chair Bob Keeney the authorization to review and approve any future projects that would be considered for funding from the CARES Act, including the purchase of the trailer.
The CARES Act projects submitted to the county board on Tuesday cost just over $40,000.
