Watson says Commission may take P.J. Kelly's, Washington Square for new judicial annex

By Local News | December 26, 2017
By Brittany Murray. An annex housing the county’s circuit and magistrate courts could be in store for the Harrison County Commission.

Silling Associates presented the commission with two building options where a Harrison County Justice Center could be constructed during a commission meeting last week, each located at the corner of Second Street and Washington Avenue.
Commission President Ron Watson said the property, which sits behind the Chase Building on Third Street, expands from Modoc Alley to Washington Street.
“We’ve been able to design, already, a judicial building that would fit into that particular footprint, whether it’s a two story or a three story. We like the two story,” Watson said. “Now that takes in about four or five different property owners.”
Several businesses, including Kelly’s Irish Pub & Grill, Washington Square Pizzeria and Marion’s Beauty Salon, currently operate on the suggested property.
“We’ve already engaged the services of a legal firm to facilitate and deal with property owners to see if it’s attainable,” Watson said.
