County officials eye Municipal Center for Judge's offices

Stec and others also proposed remodeling a section of the former county jail, which is now vacant, and was slated to be demolished.

Muller said that the Civic Center Plaza site - where a Trustco bank branch was once located, would provide a space that is on-par with other state Supreme Court justices.

Last week, Fourth Judicial District Administrative Judge Vito Caruso told Monroe that he preferred to have Muller's office at the municipal center. Renovations need to be made to the court wing in order to meet state mandates, but some of the cost may be covered by the state Office of Court Administration, Monroe said Wednesday.

"Several spaces at the Municipal Center look promising," Monroe said.

Supervisors said they are pleased with this course of action, stating that the Trustco site was simply too expensive.

Muller was elected in November to a 14-year term.
