Providing maximum service to Huron County residents and locals who interact with County staff are two of the reasons possible alternate sites are being examined for the County's new administration building.
Staff continue to explore potential sites in the Clinton and Blyth areas, along with the former Victoria Public School property in Goderich.
Architectural drawings have already been submitted for the proposed $41 million environmentally friendly complex, that Council reviewed in January.
Chief Administrative Officer Meighan Wark says if either Blyth or Clinton are selected as the site for the new building, the architectural plans may not have to be changed.
The expanded search for a site started in June, when some members of Council suggested the County's headquarters could be put in a more central geographic location.
Huron County administration is outgrowing its present offices in the Goderich Courthouse.
Wark expects a staff report on the location search to come before Council, sometime this fall.
