Russell Co., KY to break ground for new judicial center
Branscum-Pepper Construction, Russell Springs, KY will be construction manager for 44,500 s.f. project in on Monument Square, Jamestown, KY. Judge Mickey Garner will be speaker at the groundbreaking ceremony.
From Kentucky Court of Justice Office of Public Affairs
FRANKFORT, KY - The public is invited to a groundbreaking ceremony for the planned Russell County Judicial Center on Monday, September 28, at 10amCT. The event will take place at Monument Square in Jamestown, KY.
The Kentucky General Assembly authorized the judicial center project for Russell County in 2006 and approved funding in 2008. The building will be approximately 44,500 square feet.
Brandstetter Carroll Inc. architectural firm of Lexington designed the Russell County Judicial Center. Branscum-Pepper Construction of Russell Springs is the construction manager for the project and Ross, Sinclaire & Associates, which serves Kentucky and six other states, is the financial agent.
Supreme Court of Kentucky Justice Daniel J. Venters and Russell County Judge-Executive Mickey Garner will be among the speakers at the ceremony. Other state and local officials expected to attend include judges, attorneys and the Russell County circuit court clerk. For more information, contact Judge-Executive Garner at 270-343-2112.
Process for Constructing Judicial Facilities
The Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts provides oversight and administration of court facilities in accordance with House Bill 734, which was passed by the 2000 General Assembly. As a result of this legislation, the AOC created a process that would fairly and objectively determine facility needs. The AOC's Facilities Management System has earned the Kentucky Court of Justice a national reputation for being able to identify facilities with the greatest needs for new construction, renovation, expansion and adaptation.
Once funding for a judicial center is authorized, the AOC Division of Capital Construction works with local communities to assemble a Project Development Board. This board ensures that county and court officials have input on all aspects of the project, including decisions on the site, architect and contractor. The PDB consists of the county judge-executive, a fiscal court representative, the chief circuit judge, the chief district judge, the circuit court clerk, a citizen at large, the AOC director or designee and a Kentucky Bar Association designee.
As the administrative and fiscal agent for the Kentucky Court of Justice, the AOC oversees the construction and maintenance of court facilities statewide and supports the activities of 3,800 court system employees, including the elected justices, judges and circuit court clerks.
