Looking temporary home
commission at jc penney

Barton County officials, county commissioners and commission candidates listen as Mark Bitter and Tammy Hammond explain the details of the former JC Penney building at Broadway and Kansas Avenue in Great Bend. Hammond owns the building and the county is looking at using it as a possible temporary home for county offices once the replacement of the Courthouse’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system begins. County officials are eyeing options for when the work starts, but there is no definite timeline for this. However, the earliest would likely be after the first of the year.
