It looks as if the Williams County Sheriff’s Office may be able to keep its satellite office at the county fairgrounds in Montpelier.
In a news release from the Williams County Commissioner's Office, they say under an annual memorandum of understanding between the Williams County Commissioners and the county sheriff’s office, the one-story former fairgrounds caretaker’s house has been used by the sheriff’s department for the past two years.
Commissioners had asked the sheriff to move out of the house by January 31st to make way for the Williams County Job and Family Services. They planned to use it for supervised child visitations for their clients.
At present, Job and Family Services uses a converted office inside its main office building in downtown Bryan. Commissioners and personal at JFS thought that the former caretaker’s house would offer more space with a residential "feel" for families.
