Hubbard County commissioners took an incremental step toward a $1 million building project Wednesday but stopped short or authorizing the second phase of the work.


Commissioners asked Scott Fettig, president of a St. Louis Park architectural agency, to come up with a final contract and itemized work detail in moving Hubbard County Social Services above the county jail.

The project is tentatively estimated to cost $1.2 million, of which the architects would get 10 percent.
