BUCKHANNON — Upshur County Commissioners met in special session Tuesday morning to discuss the property acquisition for the relocation of the 26th Judicial Circuit Community Corrections Program.
The move was approved by the Lewis-Upshur Community Corrections Board during their meeting on July 15. Commissioners entered executive session with Sheriff Virgil Miller, Program Director Cheyenne Troxell, and Home Confinement Officer Sgt. Rodney Rolenson for approximately 30 minutes of the special meeting.
Following executive session, Commissioner Sam Nolte made a motion to approve the Day Report Center/Community Corrections Program to move forward with the purchase of the property located at 85 W. Main St., previously known as the Klie Law Office Building, for $294,900 with Community Corrections funds. This amount includes furnishings. Given approval from Commissioners, the Day Report Center and Community Corrections Office will soon be relocating to 85 W. Main St.
Troxell expressed that they’re very excited about the relocation and stated, “We’ve only been at the current building for a couple of years and have just outgrown the space. But we are happy to be blessed enough to continue to expand our services.” Ownership of the property is expected to transition on September 20, 2021, according to County Administrator Carrie Wallace.
