The Camden County Commission says a desperate need for office space coupled with a chance to save money provided the motivation behind the purchase of a nearby office building. Commissioner Don Williams says they’ve bought the building that was formerly home to the McElyea, Carpenter, and Welch law firm. The purchase cost the county $600,000, which was $120,000 below the appraised value. Williams says there are currently county employees literally working out of closets in the existing county office building. The new building will allow for up to 25 office spaces. Some of the departments are expected to start making the move late this month or early in December, with the prosecutor expected to be the first new tenants in the building.
