Marion County Board to Vote on Faub Key System At Courthouse

The Marion County Board will vote Tuesday night on allowing employees to enter the east and west doors of the courthouse with the use of a 'faub'.  

Sheriff Jerry DeVore has been pushing the system as a way to avoid a large number of keys being issued to employees that are not always returned when they no longer work for the county.  The system would allow for a faub to be deactivated when an employee quits so it no longer worked.  Different employees could also be given different hours of access to the courthouse.  DeVore estimates the cost of installing the system at five thousand dollars.

The cost has drawn some concern from some of the building committee members.  However, after several months of discussion they agreed to forward the proposal to the full county board for a vote.   

The committee tabled security improvements in the Regional Superintendent of Schools and Public Defender offices in the Public Service Building.   Additional security has already been added at the courthouse and probation office in the Public Service Building.
