** MORGAN COUNTY JUSTICE CENTER **
Citizens' Advisory Committee
The Board of County Commissioners will convene a Citizens' Advisory Committee to develop a plan for the Morgan County Justice Center. The capabilities of this building have been exceeded by the agencies who occupy it.
The agencies housed in the current Justice Center are operating at full capacity and have no room to expand although growth within the county and the associated activity of these agencies continues to increase.
The Commissioners are looking for interested citizens who would like to participate in the planning, financial analysis and construction of this project so it benefits Morgan County in the best possible way. Knowledge of the County's needs, construction and finance would be particulary useful.
If you would like to serve in this capacity, please contact
Kristi at the County Commissioners Office at
970-542-3500 option 5.
