DeWitt building named Clinton County Satellite Offices

By Jeremy Huss
Staff writer

Accepting a suggestion offered by budget director Jeannine Clark, the Clinton County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Oct. 14 to rename the former Candlelight Restaurant in DeWitt the "Clinton County Satellite Offices."

The building is located at 226 11th St.

Building maintenance manager Corey Johnson said he liked the idea because it will eliminate confusion with the county's other DeWitt property, the Clinton County annex building located at 329 E. 11th St.

Supervisor Jill Davisson said she likes using the word "satellite" because it's the term used historically to refer to the sheriff's road patrol building in DeWitt.

Clinton County purchased the former Candlelight property two years ago to replace the satellite sheriff's office on the south side of DeWitt.

Sheriff's office employees starting using the building earlier this year after the first phase of renovations was complete, and a second phase of renovations is in progress to create space for the treasurer's office, zoning department, health department and other offices.

When renovations are complete, the county plans to relocate offices from the county annex building to the satellite office building and sell the annex to recoup some of the renovation costs.

The cost of the building purchase and renovation is estimated at $1.3 million, according to figures provided by Johnson Oct. 7
