Building needs and a housing study will be discussed Tuesday by the Washington County Board of Supervisors.

The discussion of whether the county should purchase the Federation Bank building in downtown Washington for approximately $1.7 million will continue. The building could potentially house some of the crowded offices that are currently in the courthouse. Also, the supervisors will consider a Washington County Housing Demand Study. The final item on the agenda is discussion and action regarding the start time for board of supervisor meetings. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Washington County Courthouse.
