County Commissioners Decide on Architect

After much deliberation the County Commissioners have come to a decision regarding the renovation of the Jefferson County Courthouse.

It was decided at the Tuesday, Jan. 22, meeting that the county would work with Berggren Architects. Jerry Berggren of Berggren Architects has worked with Jefferson County in the past.

The many projects that he has completed include the remodeling of the Health and Human Services offices, putting in the handicapped exit/entrances. He has also built the elevator, supervised the rebuilding of the steps as well as the bell tower and the beam that was collapsing over the district courtroom. Berggren is also responsible for designing the utility shelter that is used by maintenance to store equipment and supplies. He is aware that the courthouse itself is part of the Historical Registry and the special needs that this presents.
