Will County is working toward a better record management system for its properties and the potential hiring of a facilities manager.
The Will County Board’s Capital Improvements Committee met Tuesday morning and received updates on various projects. Its members briefly discussed the quality control aspect of the new $195 million Will County Judicial Complex.
Will County Executive’s Office Deputy Chief of Staff Dave Tkac told the committee he was surprised, having spent most of his career in construction, that the county doesn’t have reliable record documents for any of its assets. He wants to change that for the judicial complex and the under-construction Will County Public Safety Complex.

Will County Executive Larry Walsh has worked in politics his entire life, and he's never seen it this bad.
Walsh, who turns 69 on March 3, remembers when Democrats and Republicans compromised when it was time to work through political differences and do the jobs they were elected to do.
"(Former House Speaker) Tip O'Neill was just as adamant for his Democratic side as Ronald Reagan was for the Republican and the conservative side," Walsh told me Wednesday.

In his 11th-annual State of the County address Thursday, Will County Executive Larry Walsh said the key to the county's success has been compromise and cooperation.
As he highlighted the "significant accomplishments" of the past year and the "exciting work" that lies ahead, Walsh stressed, "When we work together we can achieve great things."
The third-term Democratic leader has worked with a Republican-majority board on a $275 million effort to replace aging county facilities and, "despite challenges," has partnered with state and federal agencies on road work and expanded services to residents.
