Committee formed to evaluate County space


Knoxville —

Before much more can be done to try to better organize and distribute County offices among the available buildings, department heads believe a decision regarding the future home of DHS in Marion County must be made. No one knows the amount of available space, or where it will be, until a new lease, if any, is signed with DHS. 

After a great deal of discussion among the supervisors and department heads, Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson offered to lead the committee to study available space and potential needs. The committee will likely include department heads from throughout the courthouse.

The first step is to create a list of square footage each department has now, as well as a number of employees, and provide it to the supervisors at the board's April 8 meeting. Supervisor Jim Kingery also intends to contact the Department of Administrative Services, regarding the future home of DHS in Marion County, prior to that meeting.
