If you’ve ever noticed how nice the grounds are kept around the Newton County Courthouse a big thank you goes out to the County Maintenance Department. Of course the crew does more than just mow yards and shovel snow they do their best everyday to make sure county buildings are accommodating to the residents and patrons of the county.
This four member staff includes Maintenance supervisor Bobby Linton , workers Chris Wojtowicz, Laura Layton, and Casandra Martin. Linton and his staff have a wide range of knowledge and expertise in maintenance care. Linton brings to the county years of experience in heating and air conditioning repair. Layton has a strong background in mechanical care. Wojtowicz is an excellent carpenter, while Martin takes care of housekeeping at the Sheriff’s office and Jail along with keeping the Courthouse annex looking nice for fellow employees and the public. There’s not many things that they can’t fix or repair if its broken. ,
There’s never any downtime for the staff. They are busy with any problems that may arise at the various county facilities. You’ll find them at the county jail, the county annex, the 911 emergency dispatch center, the county emergency operations center at the armory, the historical complex and the soon to be new county judicial center on the square…
Bobby and his staff have recently undertaken a major project at the armory building. With the help of other county departments, hundreds of boxes of outdated records are being purged for shredding. It’s a long tedious process that will provide much needed space for future county records. An update on the project will highlight an upcoming State of the County.
So remember the next time you visit one of the county facilities, the beautiful grounds, the cleanliness of the facilities it’s the result of hard work and dedication from a truly remarkable staff, the Newton County Maintenance Department.
The Commission is proud of this committed group of individuals. We just want to say thank you to the maintenance staff who are devoted to the wonderful people of Newton County.
