New Castle City Commission unanimously made a motion to buy 31 East Cross Main last week.
The 2,400-sq.-foot building, previously the North Central Health Department office, will provide space New Castle Mayor Denny Benham thinks city hall needs.
“It’s going to give us some room for one thing. We won’t have enough room to continue in a few years,” Benham said. “It will give public works office here (the present New Castle City Hall ) an office, and the Main Street manager can have his office back.”
