FORSYTH COUNTY — The Forsyth County commission approved a bid for a high-density filing system during its work session Tuesday.
The bid of about $265,982 was awarded to DeKalb Office Products and includes instillation. The unit will be used for physical files and is part of the new courthouse and jail projected scope and budget, according to county officials.
“It’s a high-density filing system, something like you would see at a doctor’s office perhaps, the one’s that they have crank on it, and it slides across guidelines,” said Donna Kukarola, the county’s procurement director. “It’s for heavy files. It’s a space-saving kind of unit.”
The commission also voted to contribute $5,000 toward the design of a proposed fountain outside of the courthouse.
The fountain would be built with donations from the community, but required an initial design before donations could proceed.
Commissioners had previously approved installing the necessary infrastructure for the fountain.
