During Thursday’s commission meeting, commissioners signed a resolution that agreed to transfer ownership of the building to the Town of New Haven. According to Mason County Administrator John Gerlach, the town was already paying insurance on the building and the only change is that the commission will no longer be held liable.
The commission unanimously agreed that transferring the building’s ownership also would be more beneficial to the Town of New Haven and its citizens.
