Humphries, the Republican nominee for Trigg County Judge-Executive, told the Cadiz record last week that whether or not one thinks that the Justice Center should be in the courthouse location, the Administrative Office of the Courts decided that it should be built downtown, so he thinks everyone should lend their support to that idea. He said it’s going to be a big task for the next judge-executive to oversee, but he wants to make sure it’s done right. It’s going to change the face of downtown and he said he hopes it can be a building everyone in the county can be proud of for the next 60 or 75 years. He said the architect, Dennis Arthur, has gone to “great pains” to make it a beautiful building
Humphries said that there may have been some validity to the idea that a construction manager for the project would help keep costs down, but he added that he is not a builder and not an expert on the subject.
