Columbia County unveils new courthouse annex


arly this year, Columbia County Assessor Sandra Cawyer, Collector Rachel Waller, and Treasurer Selena Blair moved into a new courthouse annex just a short distance from the historic courthouse.

Te annex is housed in a former elementary school that was

renovated to fit each official’s needs. For instance, when they were housed in the courthouse, Assessor Cawyer’s office was upstairs while her staff worked downstairs. Now, the entire staff works in the same area. Each of the officials report their new space is larger and more accommodating than their former space in the courthouse. In addition, the building is outfitted with surveillance cameras that broadcast hallway activity to each office. In case of emer- gency, each office also features a secondary exit. Te annex sits near the Road Department, on about 15 acres of land, which Treasurer Blair said would be ideal for expand- ing the building in the future. County Judge Larry Atkinson has kept his office in the courthouse on the square in downtown Magnolia.
