|County selects company for justice system study|
|By duboiscountyherald.com- Candy Neal|
Another step has been taken in the ongoing work to determine the range and cost of improvements to the county’s security center.
The Dubois County Commissioners voted 2 to 1 Monday to hire RQAW Corporation of Fishers to conduct the feasibility study. Commissioner Chad Blessinger voted no, explaining that his first choice was Elevatus Architecture of Fort Wayne, though RQAW was his second choice.
RQAW, Elevatus and a third company were interviewed in October, having been selected from eight companies submitting proposals for the job. Along with conducting interviews, the commissioners were also considering whether or not a consultant should be brought in at the same time to help with the direction of the study as well as with the future architectural design and construction phases. They decided to hold off on the consultant, feeling that one was not needed for the feasibility study.
“In the future, there could be value in using a jail consultant for some guidance and leadership,” Blessinger said.
