LIMA — The offices of the Allen County Board Commissioners will relocate from the third floor of the Allen County Courthouse to the third floor of the Court of Appeals Building, 204 N. Main St., Lima, in late October or November, according to a press release.
The courthouse roof and clock tower are in need of repair and are leaking water on the fourth floor of the courthouse where the Probate Court offices and courtroom are located. The court will conduct its business on the third floor of the courthouse while the repairs being made.
The move by the commissioners is a permanent one and decreases the space the office now occupies by 1,000 square feet. The new space is currently used for storage by the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office.
It’s all part of a bigger plan, according to the release.
“The relocations of the offices is the first of several deliberate and strategic moves of county offices to allow for capital improvements and repairs and to make better, more efficient use of county-owned real estate.”
