According to reports in Indiana's Journal Review, Montgomery County employees will no longer need to worry about cleaning their offices, or contracting maintenance repairs. This was made possible because of a commissioner's goal to reduce budgets and make room for the creation of a maintenance fund.

The new maintenance fund will be divided into six to cover all cleaning and maintenance procedures. Reports indicate that it will cover the maintenance supervisor’s salary, part-time help, janitorial services, cleaning supplies, maintenance repairs and travel expenses.

In an effort to save money, inmates from the Montgomery County Jail will clean the courthouse and other government buildings, while under the supervision of the maintenance supervisor. A list of allowed duties and places inmates can occupy will be discussed with office holders.

The new program is expected to save the county between $30,000-50,000.
