(LAGRANGE) - LaGrange County Commissioners green-lighted several purchases during their meeting Monday morning.
The largest, $18,388 for new cabinets in the Recorder’s Office, didn’t need Commission approval because it’s being paid for from the Recorder’s Perpetuation Fund. LaGrange County Recorder Jennifer McBride says the new system of storing the recorded files will be cheaper in the long run, and will still be called plat books, just for continuity sake.
The Commissioners approved the I.T. Department’s request to purchase panic buttons for the Prosecutor and Probation Offices in the new Justice Building at a cost of $2,161, an audio mixer and amplifier for the two courtrooms at a cost of $10,703, three new desks for the I.T. Department’s move to the former Prosecutor’s office at a cost of $5,519.
They also approved the Highway Department’s request to purchase a salt spreader from Line-X of Angola for $7,561.
In addition, the Commissioners approved acceptance of a grant from the Community Foundation to equip new medic packs for every police officer in the county. Sheriff Jeff Campos says these will replace the ones they have been using for several years.
Campos says the new bags will all have the same items. He says they purchased the bags and talked to Parkview Hospital about purchasing the items, but Parkview suggested the grant from the Community Foundation.
Campos says it will cost just over $8,000 to equip the 60 new bags.
