Why is the new court house lights always on at night?
Every light in that building is on, and they got them big outside lights on as well.
Like who is going to need the court house at night?
And that clock, wrong choice! You canít even hardly see it.
I donít know who pick that clock out, but they didnít know what they was doing.
The old court house lights are not on at night.
We the tax payers are paying for them lights to be on.
It cost way to much for the lights to stay on 24/7.

I hate the new court house, It's too big for our small town and the location, I hate it, the old court house was good enough.

In addition to the lights, it cost 11.5 million to build it. At 33,000 square foot,(20 times larger than the average home in Owen county) it will cost approximately $2,000 to heat and cool it each month. Plus, it will have security magnetometers (to detect guns?) and full-time security personnel to run it. I just hope they hire locally for the security jobs. And get this... The circuit clerk moves their offices there, but the county judge, county attorney, and PVA offices remain at the old location. The Sheriff's department remains in the old jail, which at one time was condemned for safety reasons. The city police remains at the previous funeral home.
Divvy that 11.5 million between Owenton's population and every man, woman, and child gets $8,650. That's $34,600 for a household of 4, nearly a years pay for the average Owenton family.
Divvy the 11.5 million between Owen County's population and every man, woman, and child gets $1,050 or $4,200 for a family of 4. That's 4 times more than Bush's 2008 stimulus rebate check back in 2008.
So, who's the math wizards that figured we needed a new judicial center? What we need is jobs! We need income! We need money! We don't need to keep pissing tax dollars away fixing something that is not broken!
