The Carroll County Community Corrections program will be moving out of a broom closet and into the lounge on the first floor of the county courthouse at the beginning of June.

Although the county Board of Commissioners voted May 15 to allow the move right away, Community Corrections Executive Director Keyna Everett said later that others are booked to use the lounge for various things through the end of the month, so the move wouldn’t happen until then.

The commissioners hired SRKM Architecture, of Warsaw, at a cost of $8,250, last month to evaluate the courthouse and map out how to use any remaining empty space, which includes a large space formerly occupied by the Carroll County Museum.

But none of the commissioners knew anything about the status of that study, and they voted to address Everett’s concerns, which included confidentiality of clients, and the comfort, safety and working conditions of herself and Case Manager Samantha Letsinger.
