Making Adair County records more accessible

Adair County officials are getting ready to store records in a new place.

When the courthouse roof was being worked on last year, it was discovered that the records were putting a lot of weight on the structure.

It was also difficult to find records at times.

Now, the majority of county records will be placed in a building near the Road and Bridges Building on Potter Avenue.

County commissioners say the new building will help the records be more accessible.

â??Some records you can keep for a year or two, some for 10 to 15 years. Then there are some that can't be destroyed so that's where they will be,â?? said Carson Adams, First District Adair County Commissioner

The new building is going through some final touches right now. Shelves are being set up and officials are going through the process of where the records will be located and placed.
