County to add office building at landfill

Whitman County commissioners passed a resolution Sept. 4 to establish the project for a 1,100 to 1,200 square foot building to go up at the waste transfer station to house space for two offices, a training room, break room, restrooms and small storage space.

Training now takes place in Colfax at the Public Works building or elsewhere. The two new offices will be for David Nails, solid waste and recycling director, and Craig Sines, foreman.

Nails’ office is now in the former hazardous waste facility. Sines does not currently have an office.

“Our facilities right now are sorely substandard,” said Mark Storey, Public Works director.

The 45-foot long building will go up next to the new solid waste building.

The budget is $120,000 for what Storey indicated will likely be a manufactured building.

A full-bid process is not required.

Instead the Public Works department will solicit three quotes from area contractors, and select one in October or November. The building would then be put in early next year.

“It’ll probably be on the ground in March or April,” Storey said.
