Today's official dedication of the Marietta Municipal Court is a great way for the community to get another look at the new court while reflecting on the court's history at the same time.
The court opened to rave reviews back in June. But the official dedication ceremony is 2 p.m. today followed by public tours. Featured as part of the tour will be the artwork of Marietta High School students as well as protraits of past judges and old news coverage of the judges and the court. Several past municipal court judges plan to be in attendance today.
The court was also planning to hold a Driver's License Restoration Clinic during the morning. It's an effort to help those who have lost their license set up a payment plan to help them pay the fee that's required before their license can be restored.
All of this is a good way for the public to 'get to know' Marietta Municipal Court. After years of the city being at odds over how to handle a new municipal court, and then working to meet the stipulations of a lawsuit that was filed over accessibility, it's great to see this project come full circle. The new court is certainly a positive addition to Marietta's community and as such will continue to serve Marietta's residents in the years to come.
