The Trigg County Justice Center Project Development Board spent more than $250,000 to purchase three buildings on Court Street near the new Justice Center, buildings that will be demolished to make way for more parking, according to deeds on file at the Trigg County Clerk’s Office.

The Project Development Board purchased the Virginia Alexander Building for $40,000 from Virginia Alexander, the old Boggess Chevrolet Building was purchased for $80,000 from Kathryn Costello, who is listed as a trustee for John Preston White, and the old Court Clerk’s Office and District Court Building was purchased for $136,000 from Dennis and Linda Thomas, the deeds stated.

Demolition work will cost about $65,000. Work may begin this week, but due to unforseen circumstances, may be pushed back to next week.

When the demolition work is complete, the county will have a gravel parking lot similar to the lot that was created where the old Trigg County Jail once stood, and the county will have a year to pave the parking lot and develop green space, Welker said.
