Grayson County to dedicate new judicial center Oct. 27
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The public is invited to a dedication ceremony for the Grayson County Judicial Center on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m. CDT at 500 Carroll Gibson Blvd. in Leitchfield.
“Since the early days of the commonwealth, Kentucky courthouses have held a special place as the center of our communities,” Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton Jr. said. “The new Grayson County Judicial Center will provide an efficient facility where citizens can carry out court business and seek access to justice. I appreciate the county leaders and state legislators who joined the Judicial Branch in making this project a reality.”
The judicial center consists of approximately 43,654 square feet and includes space for Circuit Court, District Court, the Office of Circuit Court Clerk and ancillary services.
The new court facility increases efficiency of services and public flow. It is equipped with the latest computer, video and networking technology. The design also provides the highest level of Kentucky court security through a single-point entry with magnetometers and security personnel. In addition, prisoners will be segregated from the public by separate entrances and corridors.
The Grayson County Judicial Center was designed to meet the standards required by the Administrative Office of the Courts. JRA Architects of Louisville designed the judicial center, D.W. Wilburn Inc. of Lexington was the general contractor and Hilliard Lyons was the financial agent.
Chief Justice Minton and Grayson County Judge-Executive Gary Logsdon will be among the speakers at the dedication ceremony. State legislators, circuit and district judges, the Grayson County circuit court clerk, AOC staff, county magistrates and other local officials are also expected to attend. For more information, contact Judge-Executive Logsdon at 270-259-5000.
As the administrative and fiscal agent for the Kentucky Court of Justice, the AOC oversees the construction and maintenance of court facilities statewide. The AOC also supports the activities of 3,800 court system employees, including the elected justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
