The government of Rutherford County will likely make some moves in the near future once the current judicial building is cleared out and moved into their brand new court building that is under construction.

One of the buildings that could see changes is the old Goldstein's building on the South Church Street side of the square. That building currently holds the election commission, building and codes, engineering and planning.

County Mayor Ernest Burgess told WGNS that a contractor is studying the buildings and departments to help decide what departments should move and what buildings need to be refurbished or possibly torn down...


Some have also suggested tearing down the building next to the courts that is used by the District Attorney and turning that into green space.


A meeting about the future use of county buildings on the square will be in the county courthouse at 5:30 in the evening on Thursday (7/27/17).

The move in date for the courts to make the switch to their new building that is nearing completion is May 1, 2018.

Meeting location:

Historic County Courthouse, 2nd Floor, Room 205

Date and Time:

7/27/2017, Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
