Knox County Purchases Future Administrative Building


The Knox County Board has purchased a building to be used for Administrative offices. The discussion about space issues in the Courthouse have been going on for years. While many options have been proposed, the County Board has now secured the property at 50 East Main Street in Galesburg to solve those issues. The new facility is tentatively scheduled to house the County Clerk & Recorder, County Treasurer, and County Assessor offices. This facility will allow for better access to these offices in an effort to provide improved services to the constituents. “We are excited to announce that the County of Knox is moving forward with this new facility to provide the citizens of Knox County with an improved customer experience and ease of access to these very critical offices of the County” stated Knox County Board Chair Jared Hawkinson. “There is still a lot of work to be done, but this is a major step forward in the process.” Planning and design work for the building will begin soon with the goal of moving these offices by early next year.
