Bucks County Capital Projects
Upper Bucks Government Service Center and District Justice Center
Moments after members of the Quakertown Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) raised the American flag this morning, the Board of Bucks County Commissioners – James F. Cawley, Esq., chairman, Charles H. Martin and Diane M. Ellis-Marseglia, LCSW – cut the ribbon to officially open the a state-of-the-art, 8,500-square foot Upper Bucks Government Services Center (GSC). The Upper Bucks GSC, located at 261 California Rd. in Richland Twp., replaces the much smaller, former county GSC at 515 West End Blvd. in Quakertown.
Surrounded by dignitaries, including Chief Operating Officer David M. Sanko, former Commissioner Sandra A. Miller, State Representative Paul Clymer, Richland Twp. Supervisor Rick Orloff, Public Works Special Projects Coordinator Joe Bush, county row officers, division leaders and department heads, the commissioners signaled a new era of service for one of the county’s fastest-growing areas.
“This will be a one-stop shop for the residents of upper Bucks,” Chairman Cawley said of the $2.617 million facility. “Services here will include the Health Department and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) clinic, the Office of Public Information, the Sheriff’s Department, Military Affairs, Adult Probation and Parole, and a new regional Consumer Protection office.”
The ribbon cutting opened the center on October 1, 2008. The other new building, District Court 07-2-05, will house the chambers of the Hon. C. Robert Roth and is scheduled to open October 29, 2008.
