    Judge Executive Looking Forward to Coming Year

    By Judge Executive Shane Gabbard
    The New Year has begun, and we are working on new things in my office. I have focused my attention on the Regional Kitchen in Annville. We are currently doing some minor repairs to the facility and hope to have it in full operation by this spring. There is a wide range of things that can be done and services that can be provided in the kitchen so I believe us acquiring the property will be well worth what money we invest in it. Marketing the kitchen will be our first step as we need to let people and businesses know that is available for use. Iím excited about what this facility will do for our county. We currently have auditors working on our FY-18 Audit. Things are going well in this audit and I donít anticipate the process to take as long as it has in the past.
