Pictured is a test section of floor that is cleaned and waxed. The line between clean and dirty can be seen.

Monroe County Commissioners had a light agenda for their July 21 regular session meeting. A motion was passed by commissioners to contract with One Source Cleaning Services of Hopewell, OH to strip, clean and wax the floors in the courthouse. The first, second and third floor atriums will be part of the massive cleaning effort to render clean the now dingy looking antique tile floors. The total cost of the project will be $3,858. The work will be done at night to avoid interruption of county business.

Meeting with commissioners was Monroe County Treasurer Judy Gramlich. Gramlich sought permission to digitize a portion of records at the cost of $6,500. The tax duplicates from 1996 to 2012 will be digitized as part of the upcoming project. The company completing the task has also recently worked with the Recorder’s Office and the Probate Court.
