WORTHINGTON -- After a motion to proceed with a not-to-exceed $13 million capital improvement plan died for lack of a second, Nobles County Commissioners this morning made two separate motions that will ultimately mean further delays for a county library building project in Worthington.

The plan, which encompassed not just a new library, but construction of a new county shop in Adrian and expansion of the existing garage at the Prairie Justice Center, was essentially split. Commissioners gave unanimous approval to move forward with architectural work on the shop and garage expansion projects with money coming from building fund reserves.

As for the library, newly elected board chairman Bob Demuth Jr., moved to authorize county staff to pull together resources to address size and cost of facility, site location and overall project scope, and report back to the full county board by April 15. That motion was also approved unanimously.
