Delaware County is holding an open house of the Courthouse Annex today.
The Courthouse Annex is the former Community Savings Bank building that sits just a block west of the courthouse at 201 East Main Street in Manchester. The County had purchased the property for just under $600,000 three years ago with the intent to move the Delaware County Treasurer’s Office and Auditor’s Office there, as well as the county’s voting equipment – the goal was to give the County more room and to make those offices more accessible to the public by moving them to a ground level. But the County Supervisors say an unexpected requirement from the State Fire Marshal was more costly than they could afford.
Supervisor Shirley Helmrichs says they’ve heard from multiple people interested in the property. The County is currently accepting sealed bids for the building – and interested bidders will have a chance to check out the building during a public open house this afternoon.
Today’s public open house at the former CSB building runs from 1 to 5 pm.
Sealed bids must be submitted to the Delaware County Auditor’s Office no later than 12 pm on May 2nd.
