List Of Potential Probate and Juvenile Court Designers Narrowed

10/5/18 – 4:59 A.M.

The list of potential architectural firms that could design a new Hancock County probate and juvenile court building is down to four. The Hancock County Commissioners met with Judge Kristen Johnson and court Administrator Shawn Carpenter Thursday to rank the firms that submitted requests to design the building.

The county expects to build the probate and juvenile court on West Main Cross Street behind the Hancock County Justice Center. It’s currently housed in a 153-year-old building next to the municipal building. Construction could start next year.

The county will interview the four remaining architectural firms over the next few weeks.
