Michigan Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth A. Weaver will be relocating her Traverse City office from a privately owned office building to the Traverse City State Building by the end of the year.
“I have said repeatedly over the years that I and my staff would move to a state-owned building in the Traverse City area just as soon as adequate state-owned space became available,” Weaver said in a court-released statement.
“Now that there is adequate space in the Traverse City State Building, we are going ahead with the move as quickly as possible. The lease for my current office requires giving 90 days’ notice to terminate, and the notice has been sent.”
According to Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly, “The lease for Justice Weaver’s current office is $67,364 and the estimated costs of buildout, moving, and related expenses are approximately $36,000. Relocating to the state-owned building is cost-effective because of the net savings of over $31,000 in rent in the first calendar year alone.”
The Traverse City State Building houses other Michigan government offices, including the departments of Agriculture, Human Services, and Treasury.
