Liveblogging meeting on Westdale, county buildings

One of the six options will presumably be the purchase of Westdale, where several county offices have operated since June. The county’s administrative office building, sheriff’s office, and several other buildings were knocked out of commission by the flood.

Supervisor Brent Oleson has reported on his blog that representatives of the mall’s owners have sent a letter to the supervisors threatening that if no sale of the mall can be agreed on, neither will Linn County’s short-term leases at Westdale be extended beyond April 30.

Oleson said the owners are frustrated because the county has failed to communicate with them.

I’ll be liveblogging the meeting here.
