Greene County Dedicates Two New Courtrooms
The 31st Judicial Circuit dedicated two new courtrooms in a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday, September 28, 2017. Presiding Judge Thomas Mountjoy thanked the many people involved in the project and the efforts that went into maintaining business as usual for the courts during the construction process.
Ginger Gooch, President of the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Association, presented an American flag, installed in the new division 3 courtroom and led those present in the pledge of allegiance.
Greene County Presiding Commissioner Bob Cirtin and Commissioner Harold Bengsch joined Judge Mountjoy in the ribbon cutting portion of the ceremony.
The $3.2 million project spanned nearly twelve months and required extensive renovation of adjoining spaces including the victim witness office, and relocation of the Greene County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office to Cox Medical Tower late last year.
