The Pulaski County Assessor’s office is staying put in the courthouse basement for now.
Their quarters are so cramped employees are forced to transact business in the hallway. Assessor Holly VanDerAa approached the commissioners and council last month about purchasing the building across from the courthouse most recently occupied by attorney Crystal Sanders. The commissioners told her to proceed, but the council wanted more information about whether the building is handicap accessible and otherwise up to code.
Maintenance supervisor Morry DeMarco advises the electrical system needs an upgrade. Commissioners asked him to get quotes for the necessary work and share his findings with them.
