The Johnson County Board of Supervisors discussed plans to remodel the reception area of the County Attorney's office at its work session Tuesday.

The plans include enclosing the front desk area in glass. County Attorney Janet Lyness said the renovation will help with several problems, such as minimizing noise levels among people waiting to enter the nearby courtroom. Enclosing the front desk will also help regulate temperature levels in the winter, Lyness said, because of the number of people entering and exiting the building. The glass will also be bulletproof, she said.

The renovations will not begin until after July 1, said David Kempf, the county's facility manager. Bids for the project will likely start at the end of May, he said.
