Sanmina SCI recently closed down here in Rapid City, leaving a very large office and manufacturing building. My wife was among those who lost her job there.
Comes now the folks at county government looking for space to put county employees. We can kill a number of birds with a relatively inexpensive stone.
The building exists. It has a bunch of offices. It has a bunch of space protected by an excellent security system. It has a bunch of really good, large conference rooms that are at least as large as our current courtrooms. It has a gymnasium. It has a cafeteria. And it has numerous rooms that could be used as lounges.
Let's buy it for less than it would cost to build new and make a multi-purpose work-release, courthouse, courtroom, county office facility and save the county's taxpayers a bunch of dough they don't have to spend.
