County offices undergo restoration
By SUE WATSON
The Marshall County chancery clerk’s payroll and accounting office is being restored with the hardwood floors redone and a new coat of paint on the walls.
This is the second phase of restoration of the chancery clerk’s offices. Last year the records office was restored and reorganized.
Chancery clerk Chuck Thomas said his office is using money collected from fees to make improvement in the public spaces where people come and take care of their business. Included in this outlay is money for furniture and supplies at the tax assessor’s office, he said.
And the north and south facades of the courthouse are getting new plaster while workers replace the facade on the Miller Building which is being renovated on the east side of the square for an additional courtroom. Money for the facades is coming from the board of supervisors’ building and grounds budget, Thomas said.
Jeff Hurdle Hardwood Flooring handled the floor refinishing work at the payroll office and the Ranger Company, under the direction of site supervisor Leslie Thomas, is handling the plaster work.
Thomas said moisture had gotten behind part of the old plaster at the courthouse and frozen, causing the old plaster to crack and fall off.
