Courts Center Name Changes to Honor Former County Mayor

August 20, 2021 - MoCo Gov.

The Montgomery County Courts Center was assigned with a new name this morning to honor former Montgomery County Mayor Doug Weiland. The signage unveiling ceremony took place at 10 a.m. revealing the official name as Doug Weiland Courts Center.

Family, friends, former co-workers and associates gathered at the Third Street corner of the Courts Center nearest to the Historic Courthouse to share in the naming tribute of the former County Mayor.

"Mayor Weiland served as County Mayor for 10 years when tough decisions like the building of this Courts Center, had to be made. I believe it is important to show respect and honor to those who worked to build-up our community and we are here to do just that this morning,” stated Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett.

“I am honored to be here this morning. Often, these types of ceremonies take place after the person is no longer with us. I’m grateful to be here with my wife, Mary, family and friends to celebrate this moment,” said Weiland.

Weiland served as Mayor of Montgomery County from 1997 to 2006. During his tenure, he led the efforts to rebuild the Historic Courthouse as well as the construction of the Courts Center, located at 2 Millennium Plaza. Since the Courts Center was completed in 2002, two new courtrooms and supporting new offices have been added. There is space left for two additional courtrooms and offices.

“When we built the County Courts Center, we built it not for only for that present time but also with the future in mind, providing room for growth. I’m proud of that,” Weiland added.

A short video of Former Mayor Weiland and his wife Mary pulling the covering off the signage can be found at the Montgomery County, Tennessee Facebook page.
