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.
