PITTSBORO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Calhoun county's court facilities have already moved into the new $5 million structure.
Wednesday morning, workers who were said to be working off their fines owed to the county, were moving furniture into the new Calhoun County Courthouse.
Measurements were taken to make sure that no scratches were left on the shiny new doors and walls of the facility.
Board secretary and county purchase clerk Sheryl Fleming has been looking forward to this day for quite some time.
"We're excited we can't wait to get over here. We're in the process right now. We've been anticipating this and waiting for a while. But we are ready," said Fleming.
Her office was located in a building directly across the street as renovation and construction work took place at the courthouse.
With records stacked to the ceiling and wall-to-wall in a building that has seen its better days, members of the Chancery Clerk's office in Calhoun County say they can hardly wait to get into the new courthouse.
Its been over two years now they say, as they patiently awaited completion of the new courthouse.
Someone else who has been patiently waiting, is the man that owns Courtyard Restaurant which recently opened just across the street from the new courthouse.
"I think it'll be great and will be great for the whole community. We're looking forward to it," said owner Guy Jenkins.
Meanwhile another county worker says her office has been in the new building for about a year now. She adds her comrades are going to love it, but she says the moving is the worst part.
"Its a job. Its not something I'd every want to do again. We had a lot of stuff that we didn't realize we had," said Tracy MGuirt
Officials say the move should be complete within two or three days.
Construction started on the new building in February of 2010.
This marks phase two of the move back into the courthouse.
It sits in the same spot as the old county courthouse which was 72-years old.
