Location, location, location!

The opinion pieces and the letters to the editor slamming the DA and the BOS for the decision to rent space badly needed for the DA’s staff to do their job are short-sighted. Everyone agrees the office needs the additional space.

Other county departments that have outgrown space in the county facilities are renting space. Some of these departments are the Public Defender, the Probation Department, Social Services and Child Support Services.

The timing, since the Building Department had to lay off a few employees because of the building slow down, should be put in perspective. A recent look at the county’s Web site shows the county is currently recruiting to fill some 30 positions. This is hardly a sign of tough times mandating that the DA and BOS put off a long overdue decision that could be even more costly if delayed.

As far as the price: location, location, location! Not to mention needed square footage.

As for the “good old boy” smear, why don’t you talk to the building’s owners about all the county business they try for and don’t get?
