SCC Open House


Wednesday, January 16




The Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders is extending an invitation to residents of Salem County to attend the grand opening of the new Salem County Office Complex at 110 5th St. The open house is set for 4:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16. The complex, formerly known as the Five Star Complex, was purchased by the county in order to address multiple needs related to space. The County will be saving approximately $197,000 in rent and leasing fees for the Mannington Complex in 2013. The County will receive $120,378 from the two dollar store tenants located on the 5th Street property. The rental fees the County receives from the tenants is used exclusively towards the payment of the bond that was sold to renovate the 5th Street Office Complex according to outgoing Salem County Chief Financial Officer Doug Wright. According to Public Works Director Ridgway, the move to the new facility is completed and departments are now completing the task of unpacking and organizing. The 5th Street Complex will be home to the following Salem County Offices: Clerk, Election Board, Superintendent of Schools, Tax Board, Engineering, Planning, Weights & Measures, Adjuster, Veteran’s Officer and Board of Health.
