At its meeting on January 4, the Warren County Board of Supervisors accepted a bid for the Warren County Secondary Roads Facility. Six proposals were submitted, ranging in price from $6.836 million to $6.059 million. The cost of installing radiant heat in the flooring in a second option proposal varied from $107,000 to $155,000. For a total of $6.181 million, the low bid from Graphite Construction Group, previously Rochon Corporation of Iowa, was accepted for both the base bid and the optional radiant heating bid. The radiant heat was advised because the facility would be temperate and mostly unheated, according to Shive-Hattery architect Phil Parrott, who informed the board of supervisors. Temperatures in the open workplaces of the building are projected to be between 45 and 55 degrees. However, the offices will be heated. It took 11 years to complete. The new facilitys site selection began in 2011. In 2012, the county paid $360,000 for 37 acres south of Indianola. The existing facility is only six acres in size.
