Harrison County Commission continues to look for a solution on how to make room for new hires within the county judicial system.
According to County Commissioner David Hinkle, it is up to commission to furnish office space for elected county officials and employees, and Hinkle said commission has offered the court options. So far, the court has not been pleased with commission’s plan to convert a space in the basement into offices for the court’s new probation officers.
“If you’d actually go to some of these elected officials’ offices, you would be surprised at how packed we have people within this building. They are right on top of each other and don’t have any room. So, we’re trying to make it so that it’s more of a better work environment for everybody,” said Harrison County Commissioner David Hinkle.
Hinkle said commission will continue to work toward a solution to satisfy all parties, but he points out that there are a lot of moving parts that they need to work through.
