ADRIAN, MI, JANUARY 10, 2020 – As Lenawee County enters Phase II of their Complex Capital Improvement Plan, the administrative offices that reside in the Old Courthouse building in Adrian are preparing to move to their temporary office space across the street in the County Annex building.
Phase II of the Complex Capital Improvement Plan includes renovating the historic Old Courthouse building in which many administrative offices of the County reside. Built in 1885, the Romanesque Revival building has served as the seat of Lenawee County government for 135 years and remains one of the most impressive of Michigan’s surviving late nineteenth-century courthouses.
“We are looking forward to the next phase of our capital improvement plan,” explained Martin Marshall, Lenawee County Administrator. “It’s time to improve the maintenance, security, energy efficiency, and technology so that this building can continue to serve our residents for another 100 years. We want to honor our past with a historic renovation while continuing to be good stewards of our assets.”
During the renovation, the administration offices will be located in the Lenawee County Annex Building across the street from the Old Courthouse Building at 113 W. Front Street, Adrian, MI. The Annex Building previously held the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office during Phase I of the Complex Capital Improvement Plan, which included the construction of the new Sheriff’s Office.
In order to accommodate the move, the following offices will be CLOSED from February 4-5, 2020: the Lenawee County Treasurer, Register of Deeds, Equalization, County Clerk-Vital Records, and the Administrator’s Offices.
All services will reopen to the public on Thursday, February 6, 2020 on the main floor of the Annex Building. Office telephones numbers will remain the same. Office hours will be from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM; service offices will close for lunch from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM.
The Board of Commissioners will hold their Personnel/Ways and Means Committee and their monthly board meetings in the Adrian City Chambers located at 159 E. Maumee Street, Adrian, MI 49221. The Personnel/Ways and Means meeting is the Tuesday before the second Wednesday and the Board of Commissioners meeting is the second Wednesday of each month. All other standing committee meetings will be held in the conference room of the Annex Building.
