New software system, renovations improving morale at Bibb Co. State Court

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Employees on the top floor of the Bib County Courthouse are much happier after recent renovations and a news software system was installed.

“Wonderful, it has been such a change,” State Court Clerk, Patti Graves said. “A lot of things have been smoothed out, shortcuts that we didn’t have because the mainframe was 30 years old.


The new $1.2 million software system is just as good as Graves had hoped for.

“All of our employees are talking about how user friendly it is,” Graves said. “They should have a smoother transition in filing their documents.”

E-Court was installed in September and since then, the State Court has seen other upgrades, in the form of physical space.

We have ten deputy clerk cubicles, our own break room which has increased substantially in size,which we’re very happy about,” Graves said

Next door is the Solicitor-General, Rebecca Grist’s office, which too received SPLOST money for renovations.

“We are gosh, light years ahead as far as morale and having a much better work environment,” Grist said.


The fifth floor is equipped with a key card door opening system, and areas for judges away from teh public.

And new breakrooms, which may seem small, but are important.

“I have staff that now eat together every day, it’s little things like that that’s made a huge difference in morale.”

A new software system processing cases faster in a space with a lot more room.

“I feel like the citizens have gotten so much because of the increased morale and productivity,” Grist said.  “It’s money very well spent.”
