Huron County officials are trying to determine their next move after human remains were discovered Friday at the future site of the new license bureau/title office.

The construction of the $1.1 million facility is on hold, Commissioner Tom Dunlap said Sunday.

"We need to meet with our legal team, engineer and architect," Dunlap said about what happens next.

"There are a lot of 'what ifs" but I know the architect has already made the contacts to shut the project down for Monday (today)," he added.

Construction crews were excavating the Shady Lane Drive site when they unearthed human remains, including femur and rib bones and a skull. Sheriff Dane Howard immediately closed off the area with police tape and sent crews home.
