CLINTON — The sheriff’s office will return to a manually operated filing system after a recent decision by county officials.
County property chairman Scott Nimmo told county board members the sheriff’s office wanted to return to the hand-crank method of moving volumes of files. The current, motorized system has been causing problems for office personnel.
The board approved the change at a cost of $9,560.
Nimmo also said Sheriff Mike Walker suggested upgrading the county building security camera system.
“There are spots where there is no video coverage,” Nimmo said. “It sounds like it (the current system) is way behind.”
The board approved the upgrade at a cost of $22,500.

And, the board approved $6,989.47 to upgrade the county building telephone system.
