New Home for Human Services and Health Department?

3/9/12 – The Human Services and Health Department in Dodge County could soon have a new home. A committee that studied the possible uses for the soon-to-be empty Clearview North building in Juneau is expected to recommend moving the department to that location. Officials say the cost of remodeling the facility into an office building is projected at $6.2-million. They plan to borrow $3-million and pay the rest from their general fund. Construction could begin in October after the last residents move into the new Clearview Long-term Care and Rehabilitation Facility across the street. The project is expected to take about a year to complete. Currently the department is spread out over three buildings and the renovation would bring them all under one roof. A portion of facility would continue to serve as a Community Based Residential Facility. Committee members will give a presentation to the full county board next week.
