LIBERTY - Moving has begun at Casey County's new judicial center.
Circuit Clerk Craig Overstreet's office began moving Monday and was open for business today. Circuit Judge James G. Weddle was in the process of moving in today, and District Judge Roger Elliott's office is still at the courthouse for a few more days.
In preparation for the opening, Casey Fiscal Court hired four part-time security workers Monday night.
John Casey, Karen Goode, Connie Jones and Patrick Vance were hired on a 60-day temporary at-will basis and will be paid $7 per hour. After a probationary period, salaries will be increased to $7.50 per hour. Each will work 25 hours a week or 100 hours a month, according to county Judge-Executive Ronald Wright.
"This is just part-time to begin with," Wright told the court. More employees may be added later. The four will be trained before they begin work.
