Courthouse Mail Room:  Treasurer Christy Kennedy said she asked for this item to be placed on the Agenda.  She said she realizes space is a problem at the courthouse but she noted there is not enough room to do mail outs and after all that is what the “mail room” is to be used for.  Kennedy volunteered a storage area in the Treasurer’s office on fourth floor to help clean-up the mail room overflow.   She said she is not giving that space away and does not want to lose that area for the current Treasurer’s office or for future of the Treasurer’s office.  Kennedy said she would assess the mail room each August.  She suggested hanging the television screen and BOCC said the custodial staff could purchase a bracket for it to be hung.   DA Hermanson noted this is a standard problem because of lack of space/room at the courthouse.  No action was taken.

Courthouse Asbestos:  Dennis Bonewell said he got three different quotes for the removal of the asbestos and told the amounts exceeded the quote amounts and said it would need to be done by sealed bids.
