LYONS — A slew of Wayne County departments are relocating temporarily because of an asbestos abatement project at the old county courthouse.
The offices in the 26 Church St. building are expected to remain vacant through the end of April. The county said telephone numbers will not change and signs will be posted telling people where to go.
The temporary locations are:
• Board of Supervisors office and board clerk, first floor, 16 William St.
• County administrator, first floor, 16 William St.
• County attorney, second floor, public safety building, 7376 Route 31.
• County auditor, second floor, 16 William St.
• Public defender, basement/lower level, 16 William St., with entry from the rear of the building.
• Human resources, civil service and payroll, first floor, Public Safety Building, 7376 Route 31.
• County print shop, first floor, Public Safety Building, 7376 Route 31.
The asbestos project also will send the Board of Supervisors and its committees on the road.
Committee meetings will be held in the first-floor conference room at the Public Safety Building on Route 31. The Board of Supervisors will hold its March and April meetings in the Ohmann Theatre at 65 William St.
The county said the asbestos project will facilitate building improvements related to the county’s overall effort to reduce its energy consumption.
