Hancock County Government Moves To Temporary Site

In about two weeks, Hancock County government offices will be up and running in new temporary quarters.

Thirty mobile buildings will be trucked into the old Civic Center site to house county offices. The storm damaged Civic Center was demolished to make room for county leaders.

The offices will open to the public October 17th.

"There will be every facet of Hancock County government represented in this government complex. There will be a Tax Assessor/Collector, Circuit Clerk office, Chancery Clerk office, Planning and Zoning, Board of Supervisors, all facets of county government will be represented there," County Administrator Tim Kellar said.

The Civic Center site is located behind the Human Services building on Longfellow Road. The temporary government complex will open weekdays 8am-5pm.
