Commissioners approve records shelving system


Follow The Republic:


Bartholomew County Commissioners on Monday approved a new shelving system for mental health records at the courthouse.

County Clerk Tami Hines asked for approval of $6,040 for the rolling shelving system in the locked room where the records are stored. Hines said the current shelving looks like something out of a garage, and rolling shelves would be a better use of the space, she said. The county maintenance department also said the rolling shelving would more evenly distribute the weight in the room.

“Mental health cases have to be kept under lock and key,” Hines said. “We have stuff on the floor in boxes. We are just out of space and most of those records can’t be destroyed.”

The money for the project will come from the clerk’s perpetuation fund, which comes from a $2 per case charge for every case filed in the courthouse, Hines said.

Commissioners agreed to approve the purchase from Bradford Systems Corp. of Bensenville, Ill.
