MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - Marshall County officials plan to borrow more than $1 million to pay for work on the courthouse and jail as well as the purchases of vehicles and other equipment.

The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports the board of supervisors on Tuesday discussed plans to borrow up to $1.25 million. The county would spend $500,000 for work at the 128-year-old courthouse and another $350,000 for projects at the jail.

The county also would buy patrol cars, a pickup and two dump trucks and other items.

Supervisors Chair Dave Thompson says the county could either buy bonds or borrow money from local banks.

County Auditor Dawn Williams says the amount borrowed could be a little less than $1.25 million.

A hearing on the matter is set for Feb. 25.
