The Pulaski County Commissioners this week received some disturbing news: according to Maintenance Director Morry Demarco, someone had gotten very upset at the justice center and slammed the doors hard enough to cause some extensive damage.

“They slammed the doors open real hard, both sets of doors, and twisted the one door frame and bent three hinges on it. So the hinges had to be taken off and replaced and straightened, and the door frame had to be straightened on one door, but they’re in good working order now,” said DeMarco.

Demarco says he has given the Sheriff all the information about the repairs he performed, and he says he is still hopeful the vandal is stopped. There is a camera that captured footage of the event, which is currently being examined by the Sheriff before it will ultimately be turned over to the prosecutor for charges to be filed.

In addition, Demarco gave the Commissioners a figure of $3,877 to replace the doors in the Assessor’s Office. A motion was made to accept the bid by Starke County Glass, and was unanimously approved.
