Elected officials and well wishers joined with the East Parker County Chamber of Commerce to hold a ribbon cutting at the new East Parker County Sub Courthouse on Tuesday, May 16.
The facility, located at 16600 Old Weatherford Road (just to the south of the Morningstar development), houses an office of the Parker County Tax Assessor-Collector, the Pct. 4 Constable, and the Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace. Vehicle registrations can be handled at the new office both through in-person visits and by way of a drive-thru window.
The building’s functions relocated from the old Brookshire’s building on the north side of I-20 in Willow Park.
County Judge Pat Deen said the new sub courthouse was a step in the right direction, as it is owned by the county. The county was paying rent at the previous location.
In addition to a courtroom for Justice of the Peace Pct. 4 Tim Mendolia, the building has a jury room with an adjacent office for a deputy, a meeting room for attorneys and a room that can serve as an office for a station deputy.
The land for the facility was donated to the county by the Morningstar development.
The Tax Assessor-Collector office is open from weekdays. Auto registration is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., but closed from 12-1 for lunch. Title hours are from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Justice of the Peace office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, but closed from 12-1 for lunch.
