Starke County’s first attempt to shred obsolete files and records was successful in terms of both volume and cost, according to the county commissioners. A committee reviewed records and approved the ones to be shredded. County Maintenance Supervisor Jim Coad says they got rid of nine tons of paper for a cost of $2,222.76.
The commissioners agreed county department heads need to box paperwork that is going into storage according to the document retention schedule and label the boxes accordingly. More information will be shared with department heads during an upcoming meeting.
