In the City of Bay Minette, and pursuant to the authority granted the Baldwin County Commission at §11-3-11 (a) (1) of the
Code of Alabama 1975 and Section 6 of Act No. 239 (1931), as amended, and without limitation, adopt Resolution #2020-069 of the Baldwin County Commission, which designates the rooms to be occupied in the Baldwin County Courthouse and further, to authorize the space allocations and offices applicable to the Baldwin County Courthouse.

(Resolution #2020-069 repeals Resolution #2020-057, adopted by the Baldwin County Commission on February 4, 2020.)





Previous Commission action/date:  February 4, 2020


Background:  According to Alabama General Law and Baldwin County Local Law, as recited in the attached resolution, the Baldwin County Commission has the sole authority to locate the courts and designate the office space to be utilized by the various county officers and/ or offices at all Baldwin County Commission facilities.


 At the request of the Honorable Robert Wilters, District Attorney, to allow the court reporters’ office on the second floor of the Bay Minette Courthouse, currently assigned to the Honorable Scott Taylor, Presiding Circuit Judge, to be used by the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office, as a witness holding room for child victims, staff is proposing the Commission to adopt the attached resolution which changes the space allocation as requested.  The Honorable Scott Taylor, Presiding Circuit Judge is in agreement with this reallocation.


The last space allocation change done for the Baldwin County Courthouse in Bay Minette was approved by Resolution #2020-057, adopted February 4, 2020.  The proposed Resolution #2020-069 would repeal Resolution #2020-057.
