With the dedication of the new courthouse and the Veteran’s memorial complete the county commissioners met this week with a fresh set of issues to tackle.

First on the agenda was the approval of the Nov. 8 elections which County Judge Jerry Hogan said was passed and the results of which are now considered official.

Decisions were also made regarding the final locations for the treasurer, human relations and indigent health care departments all of which are now on the third floor of the new courthouse. The county auditor’s office will be on the second floor.

The property at 108 Fanin St. - which has been under debate for sometime - will be the future home of the Driver’s License office. Hogan said the property will be remodeled for its new use.

“It’s really positive for our citizens,” he said. “It will give that department an office that is double in size and give the state police an area to operate out of.”

The meeting concluded with an executive session, but no action was taken during the meeting according to Hogan.
