Delaware County Rejects Bid for Courthouse Annex Property

Delaware County has rejected the bid they received for the Courthouse Annex property. The Courthouse Annex is the former Community Savings Bank building that sits just a block west of the courthouse at 201 East Main Street in Manchester. The County had purchased the property for just under $600,000 three years ago with the intent to move the Delaware County Treasurer’s Office and Auditor’s Office there, as well as the county’s voting equipment – the goal was to give the County more room and to make those offices more accessible to the public by moving them to ground level.
