District Judge Mills will move into new facility

By ERIC SLAGLE Daily News Staff Writer The Magisterial District Court office in Elizabeth Township soon will move to a new location in Forward Township . Magisterial District Judge Beth Scagline Mills said she recently got word from Allegheny County the local court will vacate its office in Swiss Alpine Village as of June 1 and move into a new facility in the Curves Building along Route 51 in Forward Township . The lease has been approved, Mills said on Wednesday.  Its just a matter of getting


it signed. The court has been shopping for a new home since last July and has been renting its current office on a month-to month basis. Its definitely a relief (to be moving) because now there will be more room, Mills said. The new location will provide separate rooms for holding prisoners, court negotiations, administrative offices and judges chambers all things the current office lacks. Court employees plan to tour the new offices Friday to assess its needs. Emil Burak, who chairs the Elizabeth Township Authority which owns the village, said he's also received word from Allegheny County the court will be moving out in June. He said he's had three potential tenants express interest in the space currently used by the court. Having a firm date from the county will help the authority find a new tenant, he said.
