FARMINGTON -- The inability to close both glass doors on the Davis County Commission Chambers in the new county administrative office building has forced the commission to move its closed meetings down the hall to another room.
For about a month, one half of the two-door access to the commission chambers has been missing.
The glass door, which has etched into its design one half of the Davis County seal, was removed from its hinges and taken away because it had a noticeable scratch in it, Davis County Director of Planning Barry Burton said.
"It was scratched before they put it in," said Burton, who is the county's project manager on the new administrative office building, which opened in November.
"It's all on them. They are replacing it without a cost to us," Burton said of the subcontractor who installed the door. "The scratch was there before they did the etching. It's all on them."
There is no timeline as to when the door will return, Burton said, but it is expected to be soon.
Because of the intricate pattern of the Davis County seal etched into the dual glass doors, which, when shut form the circular county seal, Burton said, the subcontractor will provide two new doors to make certain the seal matches up.
In the meantime, when commissioners need to hold a closed-door meeting, they will take it down the hall.
