County saved between 75-80% of the projected cost of a new building by renovating

A small crowd gathered outside the new Law Enforcement Center as Sheriff Jeff Bailey cut the ribbon officially opening the new Union County Sheriff’s Office at 200 East Main Street. Supervisor Frank Hart recognized County Engineer Jerry Brannon who served as Project Manager for the renovation. Bradley Devo with maintenance did a lot of work. Neil McKeown and Tim Roark and the inmates of the Union County Detention Center also provided a lot of service with the project. Diane Freeman was heavily involved in getting the IT up and running at the office. Hart thanked Union County Council for valuing the work that the Union County Sheriff’s Office does and giving them the equipment and facilities they need to do their job.

Hart said the final price tag for the county on the project came in between $400,000 and $500,000. He estimated a building that size would cost nearly $2 million to build new.
