Citizens of Rock Island County will get to vote on the fate of several county buildings on next month's ballot and county leaders want to make sure voters are informed.

Last spring, KWQC took a tour of the crumbling Rock Island County Court House and uncovered many issues; including mold, exposed wiring, cracks and water damage, just to name a few.

To help educate its citizens, Rock Island County Board committee members will host one of two public meetings on Monday afternoon, March 18, 2013.

At the planned meetings, committee members and board members will be ready to field questions and to discuss potential options.

A referendum question on the April ballot will ask voters if they support expanding the powers of a county building commission to let it finance new projects, like a new courthouse.

The first meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 18 at 2:00 p.m., in the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Center, 630 9th Street, Rock Island.

The second meeting will take place Thursday, March 28 at 6:00 p.m., at Local 25 Plumbers and Pipefitters Hall, 4600 Blackhawk Road, Rock Island.
