There will be a new courthouse in McMinn County next month, the Daily Post Athenian reports. According to Circuit Court Clerk Rhonda Cooley, every court office – except chancery court – will move to the new structure. That includes criminal court, circuit court, general sessions court, juvenile court and traffic court. Cooley noted the move from the downtown Athens Courthouse will be “an overwhelming process” but will be worth the updated phone system and improved security at the new location. In addition to the courts, county prisoners will be moved into a new portion of the jail as early as next week, the sheriff says.
