Ribbon cutting held for county government offices

Morgan County officials marked another milestone in the community's effort to rebuild after the March 2nd tornadoes.

A ribbon-cutting was held to celebrate the re-opening of the county government offices.

The building sustained more than seven-million dollars in damages just 100 days ago, but is already back open for business.

It will house the offices of the county's judge-executive, clerk, PVA, and sheriff.

“There are other parts of the building that are still totally destroyed and we're just trying to put as many offices as we can and taking what space we can and making it work for us,” Morgan County Judge Executive Tim Conley said.

The building was originally constructed in 1935 with a price tag of $25,000.
