The county's new Public Service Center is part of a campus master plan created because the county courthouse became so crowded that one of the judges had to work out of a remodeled closet. After numerous space studies, the decision was made to use the courthouse strictly for court functions.
After the Treasurer's, Auditor's, and Assessor's offices moved into the Public Service Center in early 2003, the courthouse was remodeled and additional courtrooms and offices were added for the judges. In addition to creating a new jury assembly room, the remodel included four new courtrooms and a second elevator.
Remodeling projects were also completed at the Franklin Center, 1013 Franklin Street, which now houses the Prosecuting Attorney's Office, and at the old Community Development building at 1408 Franklin Street, which was remodeled for Elections and Auto Licensing.
