Building Renovation Plans to be Presented during Tonight’s Pulaski Council, Commissioners Meeting

More details about proposed renovations to Pulaski County’s government offices are expected to be revealed during tonight’s joint county council and commissioners meeting. Back in October, Maintenance Director Jeff Johnston unveiled a plan to improve the accessibility, security, efficiency, and usability of the county’s buildings, all within a three-year period. He said the plan would include a security checkpoint at the courthouse, full ADA compliance, and a 50-to-75-percent reduction in utility costs.

In other business, outgoing Circuit Court Judge Michael Shurn will discuss some end-of-term items before he officially leaves office. Tonight’s joint Pulaski County Council and Commissioners meeting starts at 6:00 EST at the Pulaski County Highway Garage, followed by the regular council meeting at 7:00.

Council members will consider several transfer and additional appropriation requests, including arrangements to make up a $20,000 shortfall in this year’s budget for office phones. Meanwhile, Community Development Commission Executive Director Nathan Origer is expected to discuss a proposed economic revitalization area.
