Airy Hospital.</p><p>Whether or not the Hamilton County Board of Elections goes along to the Kipling Road building remains to be seen.</p><p>The commissioners had until the end of the month to decide whether or not to accept Catholic Health Partner’s offer of the 500,000 square foot building and the surrounding land.</p> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 18:59:49 +0000 Howard Wilkinson 22451 at http://wvxu.org Proposed Board of Elections, Crimb Lab Move http://wvxu.org/post/proposed-board-elections-crimb-lab-move <p></p><p> Thu, 23 Jan 2014 11:30:00 +0000 Jay Hanselman 22161 at http://wvxu.org Proposed Board of Elections, Crimb Lab Move Commission weighing Mt. Airy hospital offer http://wvxu.org/post/commission-weighing-mt-airy-hospital-offer <p>Hamilton County Commissioners continue to weigh an offer to turn the former Mercy Mount Airy hospital into a new crime lab.</p><p>Catholic Health Partners is willing to give the facility to the county for free and the county coroner says the cost to renovate the old hospital would be a lot less than building a whole new crime lab. To make the deal cost effective, however, the county wants to move the Board of Elections out there as well.</p> Wed, 22 Jan 2014 18:29:42 +0000 Tana Weingartner 22139 at http://wvxu.org County weighing facility consolidation http://wvxu.org/post/county-weighing-facility-consolidation <p>The initial report on Hamilton County's facilities needs is in and it paints a picture of aging buildings and deferred maintenance. With some offices bursting at the seams and others only half full, the county is looking at ways to consolidate operations.</p><p>One possibility is converting the former Mercy Mt. Airy hospital to hold the coroner, board of elections and some sheriff's offices.</p><p>Commissioners Greg Hartmann and Todd Portune&nbsp; says while this may seem like a good deal, the county needs to keep an eye on costs.</p> Mon, 16 Dec 2013 21:10:54 +0000 Tana Weingartner 20859 at http://wvxu.org
