DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

During the 2019-20 Budget, the Board approved the Reconfiguration of the Recorder- Clerk Office. This project took the office from two separate counter areas to one, brought all the employees into one area, created a marriage ceremony room and long-term research area. These changes have allowed us to better serve the public, increased the ease of cross training staff and provided a private area for ceremonies to be held.

 

During the past year with COVID-19 restrictions, there has been an increase in use of the office break room area. The break room area is directly outside the Department Head’s office. The cabinetry project would include the installation of a couple walls to separate the break room and allow both staff and the Department Head to have private (in some cases confidential) conversations.
