Hart County to dedicate new judicial center Oct. 30
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The public is invited to a dedication ceremony for the Hart County Judicial Center on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 11 a.m. CDT at 117 E. South St. in Munfordville.
“The Hart County Judicial Center will greatly enhance the security of our court system,” Hart County Judge Executive Terry Martin said. “This modern facility is a very welcome addition to Hart County and will streamline a lot of our new technology.”
The judicial center consists of approximately 36,000 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 Hart County Judicial Center was designed to meet the standards required by the Administrative Office of the Courts. The project was completed by Brandstetter Carroll architectural firm of Lexington and Alliance Corporation of Glasgow. Ross, Sinclaire & Associates, which serves Kentucky and six other states, was the financial agent.
Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. and Judge Executive Martin 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 Martin at 270-524-5219.
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 justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
