The new county morgue has received funding with a transfer of $150,000 to foot the bill. Financial Manage-ment Committee members, followed by Budget and Finance Committee members, met Thursday and approved relocation of the money from an “unassigned fund” to a line item called “building construction (morgue)” in the county’s 2014-15 fiscal year budget.“That is a budget amendment to pay for the morgue,” said finance director Linda Hillis. “That’s scheduled to bid Feb. 10, right?”According to County Executive Herschel Wells, bids were accepted beginning Feb. 3 and the window for submitting a bid will close Feb. 10.
