Trustee May Move Into Old Election Office

The fiscal review committee of the Putnam County commission has recommended that the Trustee's office move into the old Election Commission office, located on the bottom floor of the county courthouse.  Officials have been informally talking about what to do with the space ever since the Election Commission office was relocated to a new building on County Services Drive about a year and a half ago. The recommendation now is that the space be renovated to include a new security system and the purchase of some office furniture. The project would also include providing some storage space for the county executive's office, located across the hall.  The total cost should not exceed $12,000.  The committee has also recommended that $2,500 be spent to enclose the Farmer's Market at the Ag Extension office. The full commission will vote on those recommendations next week.
