Massac County Commissioners had an opportunity to meet Tuesday morning with Eric Weflen, an engineer and Kevin Meyer, representative, both with RQAW, the consulting and engineering firm hired to conduct a feasibility study for the county regarding the courthouse and the donation of the Banterra Bank building.

Both Weflen and Meyer told the board all the office holders have been very cooperative and the departments have provided good input. They have talked to various departments about workspace and storage needs, and also about any items they feel are relative to the building.

According to Weflen, he and Meyer spent Monday evening at the Banterra Bank building to evaluate all of the space available there.

Weflen said generally speaking very few departments expressed concerns over lack of space or storage. He noted the probation department is especially cramped, and the space in that department is not functional for what the office staff needs.

Regarding structural issues, Weflen told the commissioners he has not seen anything inside or outside that is cause for concern.

He and Meyer will visit the area of the old jail and the roof and will also be meeting with Massac County Sheriff Ted Holder. Weflen intends to take several pictures of the courthouse and the bank building and scan it into the automated computer aided drafting (Auto-CAD) program.
