After 43 years occupying various offices in the courthouse, the Pulaski County Registrar’s office will have a new home come Monday.
The office is relocating to a newly remodeled space in the western end of Maple Shade Plaza at 87 Commerce St. in Pulaski. Come Monday, it will be fully operational in its new space.
According to The Southwest Times archive, the registrar’s office moved from the Crowell Building on Main Street to the Pulaski County Stone Courthouse in the 1970s. During its time in the courthouse it has occupied several office spaces, including its current location on the third floor since June 1998.
The new location will be more readily accessible to the handicapped since it will be at ground level and will not require negotiating an elevator.
Pulaski County Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance this past Monday night authorizing the office’s move to the Maple Shade. The board also approved the moving of the county’s central absentee voting precinct from the New River Room in the stone courthouse to training room of the Technology Training Center in the Maple Shade.
