Repairs Almost Done at Justice Center, Focus Turns to Courthouse

Pulaski County CourthouseThe long-awaited repairs at the Pulaski County Justice Center are nearly complete.

Maintenance Director Jeff Johnston told the commissioners this week that the water softeners and the water heaters are installed, and all of the old units have been hauled away. Johnston said the HVAC systems should arrive this week or next week. He will coordinate with offices in the justice center for that equipment to be properly installed. The new control system will be added after that, but Johnston said that could be a while yet.

Commissioner Terry Young asked Johnston to be focused on repairs at the courthouse when the weather breaks. The basement doors need to be sealed for energy savings. ADA requirements need to be met as well as security.

The commissioners will schedule a special meeting to look at the list of items that should be worked on this year. The priority items will be brought before the county council for funding purposes.
