Judicial center project winding down; three items to complete

Updated: Jun 23

MOUND CITY – The Linn County Commissioners scheduled their final walk through of the Linn County Justice Center for Monday, June 13, at 11 a.m.


On Monday, June 6, Bill Matlock from River City Construction reported to the Linn County Commissioners that there were only three projects that needed to be completed before the justice center was turned over to the county.


Matlock said there were three goals to complete this week. The first was to get the smoke purge panel up and running. The panel arrived last Friday and the back part is already mounted. They will start to work on the guts portion today.


He said his goal was to have it installed, functioning, tested, and ready for the State Fire Marshall inspection by Friday.

The second goal was to have the remainder of the concrete parking lot poured by the end of the week, weather permitting.

And the third goal is to have the site grading finished, also weather permitting.


Matlock said after those things were completed, the county could get their occupancy permit and move in.

County Counselor Gary Thompson asked if the utilities had been switched over. Matlock said he was working on that. He said he working on a problem where Mound City was charging River City for a water meter that no longer existed. Matlock said River City would cover the utilities until he got them switched over.

“When the fire marshal says it is yours, I am out of here,” joked Matlock.
