County office building delayed
Although Columbia County has applied for and received tentative approval of a 20-day extension of the Dec. 1 deadline for the start of construction of the new Davis Road administrative complex, county officials predict it will not be needed. Last week, the Columbia County Board of Commissioners was informed of errors in a general construction contract and in county plans for the new building. The commissioners met Tuesday morning, Nov. 22, to discuss a course of action.
