Shelby County Considers Jury Space Upgrade

At its meeting Monday, the Shelby County Commission will consider a $250,000 upgrade to the county's jury commission space in the County Office Building at 157 Poplar Ave. The improvements would wrap up a two-year effort to renovate the building. One topic under discussion will be the number of electrical outlets in the space given the rise in the use of digital devices by those waiting to be called for jury duty. Other issues include whether to replace the seating and how to deal with flooring with asbestos adhesive that is coming loose. Memphis Daily News reports
