24-Hour Dorman: County bonding update

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Linn County Supervisor Lu Barron and county staffers visited The
Gazette's editorial board this afternoon to discuss issues surrounding
the possibility of floating bonds to expanded the county's
Administrative Office Building, or AOB. Last week, supervisors talked
about using new powers granted by the Iowa Legislature allowing
counties and cities hit by disasters to sell bonds without first
seeking voter approval. That sparked some controversy, because the $11
million AOB project being discussed includes costs that go beyond
simply repairing flood damage. One piece of the project involves
adding a new floor to the building to house offices, including new
digs for the supervisors. I wrote about the issue last week. Now,
Barron says disaster bonds are just one of several options being
considered.
