Taylor County to dedicate new justice center Dec. 15
FRANKFORT, Ky., -- The public is invited to a dedication ceremony for the Taylor County Justice Center on Tuesday, Dec. 15, at 2 p.m. EST at 300 E. Main St. in Campbellsville.
“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 Taylor County Justice 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 justice center consists of approximately 53,000 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 Taylor County Justice Center was designed to meet the standards required by the Administrative Office of the Courts. CMW Inc. of Lexington served as the architect, Codell Construction Co. of Winchester was the construction manager and First Kentucky Securities of Frankfort was the financial agent.
Chief Justice Minton and Taylor County Judge-Executive Eddie Rogers will be among the speakers at the dedication ceremony. State legislators, circuit and district judges, the Taylor County circuit court clerk, county magistrates, AOC staff and local officials are also expected to attend. For more information, contact Judge-Executive Rogers at 270-465-7729.
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.
