Hopkinsville City Government Moving Downtown

It is a bittersweet couple of days for Hopkinsville City employees as many move from the office building they were hired in to the new building downtown. Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp says they are ahead of schedule on the second day of the move from the Lackey Municipal Building on 1st Street to the new Hopkinsville Municipal Center at the corner of 9th and Virginia.

While he'll only be occupying the new municipal building a short time, he says he is excited to have such a beautiful building for the City.

Code Enforcement Officer Mike Guess says the new building will help to make them more efficient and accessible to the public.

Mayor's Administrative Assistant Nikki Radford says it is a little sad leaving the Lackey building.

Community Development Services Assistant Director Holly Boggess says she is excited about the new building and it's downtown locale.

CDS Information Systems Coordinator Tony Boggess says they're happy to be making a place for the new Hopkinsville Police station.

While City offices are closed for the move, City IT Director Joe Grace says they are already able to take phone calls if needed.

The move began Thursday with the Lackey Building still open to the public. Mayor Kemp says while they will continue to settle in next week, the new Municipal building will be open for business on Monday. A dedication for the Hopkinsville Municipal Center will be held September 16th before the City Council meeting. Drivers on Main Street should be aware of heavy traffic and restricted lanes in between 7th and 9th streets while moving trucks unload.
