NORWICH – The recent appointment of a full-time assistant district attorney to replace two part-timers has brought about one of the challenges that continues to plague the county – not enough office space.
The DA’s office, like many others in the county, have been waiting since fall for the completion of a new county communications system. The old transmission line provided emergency management communications and ran from the old jail building in the city to the new Public Safety Facility on Upper Ravine Road in the Town of Norwich.
Parts of the old jail are set for demolition and renovation so the county can take advantage of the currently vacant space.
Contractors have chosen to wait until the new system is operating without the old cable before beginning any demolition on the site, reported County Board of Spuervisors Chairman Richard B. Decker.
