The county board will make its selection to lead the Mower County Government Center Remodel official Tuesday.

The board is set to finalize the hiring of Knutson Construction Services as the project manager and Paul Johnson Architects as the project’s architect at the board’s regular meeting, which starts with Human Services business at 8:30 a.m. and general business at 9:30.

The county’s cost for the Government Center remodel and Law Enforcement Center projects is about $4.6 million — about $3.8 million for the government center remodel and about $800,000 for the county’s share of remodeling the Law Enforcement Center. Including all costs — county and non-county — County Coordinator Craig Oscarson said the entire project is closer to $6 million.
