WASHINGTON — Washington County Supervisors have decided not to pursue the purchase of the Federation Bank building in Washington.
After meeting in closed session for weeks, the Washington County Supervisors revealed Tuesday morning their discussions entailed the possible purchase. Located at 102 East Main Street in Washington, the building is currently for sale and also home to Washington County Public Health. For this reason, the supervisors explored the idea of purchasing the building. However, the board decided not to move forward with a purchase because money and bonds are currently tied up on other projects like the new emergency communications center.
Washington County Public Health Director Danielle Pettit-Majewski said when the building sells, her department will be given six months to find a new location and in the meantime, will remain in the building.
