More County Departments Move Into Globe

January 4, 2019

SCRANTON Several additional Lackawanna County departments and offices have moved into the former Globe store as the county’s ongoing consolidation there continues. The historic building’s second floor now houses the county Tax Claim Bureau, assessor’s office, Department of Veterans Affairs and recorder of deeds office. The county controller’s office and treasurer’s office are in the process of moving and should begin operating out of the Globe late this week or early next week, county Community Relations Director Jim Rodway said. The single tax office and Department of Elections, which will occupy the second floor, should move in about Jan. 11. Officials hope to fully occupy the Globe by the end of the month. — JEFF HORVATH
