City To Get Site of Old Juvenile Center

The City of Marion is in the process of getting possession of the old Grant County Juvenile Center and plans to use the three-acre site for a new impound site.

The lot is located on East 5th Street and has been vacant for some time.  City officials say the old building will be demolished and then turned into the new impound site for vehicles that are towed or seized.

The City Board of Works approved the transfer of the deed for the property, which will not cost the city anything.  The County Commissioners are expected to also approve the transfer at their meeting on Wednesday.
