The new heating and cooling units for the Pulaski County Justice Center are being installed this week.
Maintenance Director Jeff Johnston told the commissioners Monday night that McGrath Refrigeration started installing the HVAC units on Monday. The weather has cooperated and the process should be complete by the end of the week.
During this process, the inmates need to be moved to different cells in order for crews to work in the different pods. Johnston said his staff can perform routine maintenance at the same time while the pods are empty. He said they are able to work on any water issues or other problems while the area is open.
Johnston also commented that his plans for necessary courthouse repairs are nearly complete. A special meeting may be called so Johnston can go over the detailed report with the commissioners. He said it may take an hour to go over the specific needs. Commission President Larry Brady said he will coordinate a meeting to go over the plans.
