The Dallas County Board of Supervisors approved Wednesday the purchase of the old Doc Hanlon building at 910 Court St. near the square in Adel for $140,000.
The county formerly leased the 2,496-square-foot office space for use by the Dallas County Auditor but terminated the $1,500-a-month lease in 2016, when the auditor’s operations were consolidated at 210 N. 10th St.
Dallas County Auditor Julia Helm said her office’s activities have already outgrown the N. 10th Street quarters. The Court Street building will be used for storage of election equipment, excluding tabulation machinery, Helm said.
The one-story office was built in 1959, according to county records.
