Cathy Kelsey, the secretary and administrative assistant for the Veterans Service Office, is one of three people who work in a cramped office inside the Whitley County Government Center. County leaders approved moving the VSO to a conference room that will be converted for a larger office space.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Whitley Countyâ€™s Veteran Services Office (VSO) is moving.
Currently tucked in the back of the Whitley County Assessorâ€™s Office, the Veterans Service Office is located on the second floor of the countyâ€™s Government Center.
The corner office has an almost panoramic view of Van Buren Street, with its turret-style window feature.
â€śI always thought that it was the premier office in this building,â€ť said Whitley County Commissioner Don Amber. â€śIt has gorgeous windows and a great view. But I didnâ€™t realize how small it is. I practically had to back out of there. You can hardly turn around.â€ť
Three people work out of the current office, which is best suited for one. Gene Rohrer, the countyâ€™s officer, is assisted by two other employees.
