County OKs old jail survey
By David Fenker
 
The county is one step closer to transferring ownership of the old jail.
 
At the Monday, Feb. 6 meeting of the Wabash County Commissioners, County Attorney Steve Downs informed the commissioners that he and Indiana Landmarks reached an agreement in principle, but that Indiana Landmarks wanted the commissioners to pay for a survey of the property first.
 
After discussion, the commissioners approved up to $700 to be spent on a survey of the property.
 
“In their draft of the agreement, [Indiana Landmarks] didn’t provide for anybody to do a survey, so I was caught off guard when they said the agreement’s fine, but what’s the status of the survey?” Downs said.
