Ag Credit Presents Options For Expansion In Hancock County

8/13/18 – 5:18 A.M.

Ag Credit wants to expand its operations in Hancock County. To do that, it needs more space. Branch manager Dean Recker met with the Hancock County Commissioners to talk about the issue late last week.

Recker presented several options. He said Ag Credit could sign another lease with the county at the end of the year, and then look for a larger location to move to in the coming years. He also presented options to renovate the existing space in the Agricultural Service Center on Hancock County Road 140. Recker also suggested that Ag Credit could buy the building from the county.

Commissioner Mark Gazarek says state law prevents the county from selling property directly to someone. They would have to put it up for auction.
