April 15, 2021 Commissioners’ Special Meeting Minutes

COMMISSIONERS SPECIAL MEETING

The special meeting of the Hancock County Commissioners was brought to order by Commissioner Clark at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday April 15, 2021.    Commissioner Wombacher, Commissioner Paradis, County Administrator Scott Adkins and Deputy County Administrator Rebekah Knowlton were also in attendance, as well as State Court Administrator James T. Glessner. Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, the meeting was held remotely via Zoom.

Mr. Ted Glessner, State Court Administrator, sought a meeting with the Commissioners to provide an update on the project for a new court building.  In 2019 a space study was commissioned which came back with the recommendation to build a new state court house rather than continue to renovate the county courthouse; this will be funded by the State.  Mr. Glessner said the property adjacent to the current courthouse would be optimal for several reasons, including its sufficient amount of space, the close proximity to the jail, and the downtown location.   Mr. Glessner said the next step in the process is to go to the legislature for authorization to acquire property that would be used for the new courthouse and the support of the County Commissioners is an important piece to have in order to gain authorization.

MOTION: Move to support the State acquisition of property located in the City of Ellsworth for a new County Courthouse project as outlined by Mr. Ted Glessner today, April 15, 2021 (Paradis/Wombacher 3-0, motion passed)

MOTION: to adjourn 1:39 pm (Wombacher/Paradis 3-0, motion passed)

Respectfully submitted,

Rebekah Knowlton

Deputy County Administrator
