The Mercer County Clerk’s Office and Prosecutor’s will be temporarily moving to new offices about one mile west of their current homes, in the first phase of a plan to bring their longtime home up to code.
Starting on Tuesday, January 19, the Clerk’s Office will be located on the 6th floor of the former Holiday Inn hotel at 240 West State Street. The Elections Division will be located on the 7th floor.
According to Prosecutor’s Office spokesperson Casey DiBlasio, the Prosecutor’s Office has already moved into the new location, calling it a”beautiful space.”
The Clerk’s Office move will officially take place over the three-day weekend for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
“Tuesday morning, you’re going to have a great experience and that’s what we’re committing to,” said County Clerk Paula Sollami-Covello in her remarks at the Freeholders’ annual re-organization meeting.
“We’re going to have a gorgeous new place and it will be safe,” said Sollami-Covello.
In two years, Sollami-Covello expects to move back into the century-old Courthouse Annex building at 209 Broad Street. The building is not up to code.
