Supervisors focus on building infrastructure
By Rick Morain
The Greene County board of supervisors on Monday approved two agreements for improvements to county buildings.
One contract is between Greene County and Realwood Productions of Carroll for renovation of the new magistrate courtroom on the third floor of the courthouse. The contract amount is $26,231.42. The courtroom appearance will be in keeping with the historic nature of the remainder of the third floor.
The other agreement was between the Greene County sheriff’s department and TK Elevator for services to the elevator at the new law enforcement center (former business office building of Midland Power on East Lincoln Way in Jefferson).
Final signature on the agreement is pending approval by sheriff Jack Williams and county attorney Thomas Laehn.
The board approved hiring Jamie Brenner as a part-time ambulance driver at $10 per hour while driving and $4 per hour while on call.
Gary Goodwin discussed damage caused by birds to the rubberized silicone coating on the courthouse roof. He suggested possible solutions and estimated costs for repairs.
The supervisors meet every Monday at 8:30 a.m. in the board room on second floor of the courthouse.
