Buildings & Grounds

The Buildings and Grounds Department is responsible for providing the County with clean, safe, and attractive buildings and grounds; services performed include maintenance, repair, and janitorial. Carrying out these responsibilities often involves minor construction and alteration and, in some instances, major construction work.

Members of the staff have technical expertise in operating and maintaining heating, air-conditioning, and other plant equipment, and are proficient in plumbing, heating, painting, electrical work, and carpentry. The Department is responsible for paying and keeping records, etc., for utility expenses of the County buildings under their control, as well as keeping records and allocating all County office space, with the exception of the Infirmary and the Jail.
