Will County Opens New Coroner/Recorder of Deeds Offices

Will County Opens New Coroner/Recorder of Deeds Offices

     JOLIET – Today, Will County Executive Larry Walsh and County Board leaders were joined by Coroner Pat O’Neil and Recorder of Deeds Karen Stukel to officially open the new county offices located at 158 N. Scott Street in downtown Joliet. The new location is another example in the county’s goal of making services more accessible to its residents.

     “This building is an excellent example of Will County’s commitment to downtown Joliet,” said Walsh. “This also reflects county government’s responsibility to be sound fiscal stewards of taxpayer dollars. This new location will save the county an estimated $250,000 annually in rent payments.”

     The new location features ample off street parking, which was lacking at the former offices.  The Recorder of Deeds’ office will also have more appropriate space to serve residents who are conducting research. The Coroner’s office has a more efficient space to accommodate additional storage and office needs.

     "This building streamlines county operations,” said Will County Board Speaker Jim Moustis. “It saves energy and it's a better facility for the public."

     The project was partially funded with revenue derived from the county’s gas-to-energy plant which operates at the county-owned Prairie View landfill. Numerous energy efficient features were used in the construction including a high efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, LED lighting on the interior and exterior and high recycled carpeting, flooring, and ceiling tiles.

     “These new offices are a great example of our commitment to the county’s green business practice initiative,” Walsh said. “This is such a positive move on many fronts.”
