Gallatin County to dedicate courthouse addition and renovation June 25
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The public is invited to a dedication ceremony for the Gallatin County Courthouse addition and renovation on Wednesday, June 25, at 2 p.m. at the courthouse, which is located at 100 Main St. in Warsaw.
“This facility will meet the needs of our community for years to come,” Gallatin County Judge Executive Kenny R. French said. “The completion of this project is another milestone in moving Gallatin County forward. The citizens of our county will benefit tremendously with the completion of this facility.”
The addition and renovation project consists of approximately 14,881 square feet and includes space for Circuit Court, District Court, the Office of Circuit Court Clerk and ancillary services. The addition totals 8,246 square feet and the renovation covers the entire original courthouse, which consists of 6,635 square feet.
The updated facility will result in increased efficiency of services and public flow. The courthouse is now equipped with modern 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 addition and renovation were designed to meet the standards required by the Administrative Office of the Courts. The project was completed by Louis and Henry Group of Louisville and Klenco Construction Co. of Taylor Mill. The Kentucky Association of Counties of Frankfort was the financial agent.
Chief Justice Joseph E. Lambert and Judge Executive French will be among the speakers at the dedication ceremony. State legislators, circuit and district judges, county magistrates, AOC staff and local officials are also expected to attend. For more information, contact Judge Executive French at 859-567-5691.
As the administrative and fiscal agent for the Kentucky Court of Justice, the AOC oversees construction of court facilities statewide. The AOC also supports the activities of approximately 4,000 court system employees, including the elected offices of justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
