FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18)– Court officials are working to make sure citizens will have uninterrupted access to court services while the Taylor County Judicial Center is closed temporarily for mold remediation.

Mold in the courthouse

Work will begin Sept. 24 to address mold in the Taylor County Judicial Center at 300 E. Main St. in Campbellsville.

While this is in progress, the Taylor County Office of Circuit Court Clerk will provide all of its services from a trailer adjacent to the judicial center. Those services include driver licensing and accepting payment for court costs, fines and restitution. The Office of Circuit Court Clerk will notify individuals with pending court cases as to the location of their court proceedings.

The judicial center is anticipated to reopen Oct. 15.

Officials from the Administrative Office of the Courts and Taylor County are working together to coordinate the services of Paul Davis Restoration of Louisville to handle mold remediation and Knight’s Mechanical of Elizabethtown to repair the HVAC system. Once the work has been completed, another round of testing will be conducted to ensure the remediation was effective and the Taylor County Judicial Center is ready for public use.
