Ellettsville town offices to relocate after mold discovery

ELLETTSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – Town offices in the Monroe County community of Ellettsville will have to be relocated again after county health officials found mold.

Officials moved to a two-room office space in Eagles Landing Mall when flooding damaged the previous town hall in 2013. Now the clerk-treasurer and utilities offices will move to Smith Pike Crossing Plaza, where they’ll stay temporarily while the new town hall is being built.

The (Bloomington) Herald Times reports that the town council voted Monday night to approve the move and terminate the lease at Eagles Landing.

Although council president Scott Oldham believes the owners of Eagles Landing will resolve the mold issue, he said the council wasn’t left with much of an option other than authorizing the move.
