Pulaski County Assessor’s Office “Cramped,” May Soon Relocate

Pulaski County Commissioners Tracey Shorter, Kenneth Boswell, Michael Tiede

A change of venue may soon be in the works for the Pulaski County Assessor’s office. Assessor Holly VanDerAa approached the county commissioners this week with a request to move her office into the same building as the county building inspector, because she says there is an open room in the building.

VanDerAa told the commissioners that she wants to move her office because the office conditions are extremely tight and they are extremely cramped, and Commissioner Mike Tiede agreed. He said it would be a great idea to have her closer to the building inspector, and Commissioner Ken Boswell said there is merit to looking into the move.

VanDerAa said that she has checked out the desired location, and says it will work great. Alternatively, she offered an alternative option of moving her office into what is currently the treasurer’s office because it has more room and fewer employees working at any given time. Boswell offered up the option of converting her current office into an employee break room, but said a plan needs to be made before any changes can take place.

The commissioners agreed to get together at the next meeting to check out the potential locations and determine whether or not the move can take place.
