Registrar’s move makes sense to this 14-year-old

I attended the Suffolk City Council on June 17, where I learned that the registrar’s office is asking to be relocated to the Municipal Building.

It is not clear to me why the city attorney was not eager to move quickly on this matter. Suffolk is now renting a building for $65,000 a year, in addition to paying for maintenance and repairs. Moving to the soon-to-be-vacant police department would save taxpayers money.

In addition, the current building has no public restrooms and no handicapped ramp and shares a space with the Probation and Parole Office. Does using the restrooms in the library across the street make sense?

I may be only a 14-year-old child, but to me it makes perfect sense to move from the old building to the new one. The new location is not only owned by the city, it has public restrooms, handicapped access and more than adequate parking space. I think that the move would be beneficial to all.
