One of the owners of the former Arco Building, the Independence Corporate Office, goes before the Montgomery County Commission this week. Tim Janak was trying to address concerns raised by Montgomery County Juvenile Services. He also is seeking an extension to have a first floor space ready for the agency. Director of Juvenile Services, Duane Powell, has indicated they would prefer to be housed elsewhere following several years of climate control issues in the building.
Recently, there has also been a number of fires set that have forced employees to find a temporary place to work. Powell says his preference would be to move staff to a different location.
