Cramped quarters for town justices

Town justices Michael Mitchell and Edward Pokorny sent a letter to the Lenox board asking for more office space on the ground floor of the municipal building. The Office of Court Administration required the department go online with credit card services, something that was done this month and required counter and file space for both village and town courts.

"It appears that recording keeping requirements are increasing faster than we can adjust," the letter stated.

Board Supervisor Rocco DiVeronica visited the justices department and said he felt they could use more space.

"They are jammed in there with file cabinets and boxes," DiVeronica said.

DiVeronica said the meeting room on the ground floor was underutilized and perhaps half of it could be used for the justice department.

"I don't want to add on or bring anyone downstairs," DiVeronica said. He recommended a meeting with the village to discuss options.
