By moving the Fulton County Board of Elections to the county Courthouse Plaza, the county will save about $12,000 a year in lease payments, according to Vond Hall, Fulton County administrator.
Kandice Lemley, board director, discussed the move from the Shoop Avenue location to the former Emergency Medical Service-Emergency Management Agency building in last week’s issue of this newspaper.
The Board of Elections had occupied the Shoop Avenue space since 1992.
Hall said the EMS-EMA office, which once occupied an entire building in the plaza, is now housed in a 10×10-foot room attached to the Triangular Processing building at 9306 Co. Rd. 14 near Ottokee.
Currently two men work in the office: Justin Thompson, EMA director, and Rod Cheney, EMS director. Cheney is part-time; Thompson is full-time.
The Fulton County Board of Developmental Disabilities operates Triangular Processing as a recycling center and a sheltered workshop for persons with disabilities.
Hall said the DD board is looking for a permanent home for Triangular Processing.
If the board moves Triangular Processing elsewhere, EMS-EMA can have the entire building.
Hall said space assignments for county offices “are always subject to change.”
