The deadline to move the Trigg County Sheriff’s Department and 911 Dispatch is quickly approaching. 911 Operations Director Kim Wiggins estimated that the relocation of her facility could take up to six months. The Trigg County Fiscal Court discussed the issue at their June 6 session.

Wiggins was called upon by County Judge Executive Berlin Moore to present the findings of the Relocation Committee, composed of herself, Sheriff Randy Clark (absent), and Magistrates Tony Mitchell and Larry Lawrence. “We measured the square footage of both offices together. That’s all I know right now,” she said.

Mitchell addressed the court with his recommendation. “I recommend we advertise for bids for space for both facilities.”

County Attorney H.B. Quinn said that he would compose the bid solicitation for the county.

Moore said that it was his understanding that the committee desired to remain in close proximity to the current Trigg County Courthouse, where the new Kentucky Justice Center will be built. He also acknowledged the request to house 911 and the sheriff in one facility.

“I think (Sheriff Clark) said that he wants the facility no more than three blocks from the courthouse,” said Wiggins.

Sheriff Clark described the location in downtown Cadiz as “advantageous, but not essential.” He added “We work closely with the Property Value Assessor’s office in tax issues and disputes, as well as the Circuit Clerk’s Office with vehicle inspections during registrations. They will be operating downtown, so it seems advantageous for a citizen not to need to drive to their office, across town to our office, and back downtown to conclude their business.”
