Proposed New Law Enforcement Center & Courthouse

At the Commission Meeting on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, a new building plan was proposed that reduced the size of the jail to a 16 bed facility and made cuts in other areas, implemented a slanted roof and did not plan for removal of the existing courthouse to bring the price of the new building down to an estimated $11.6 million. The board discussed passing a bond issue for $11.9 million in order to have enough funds to build the new courthouse/law enforcement center and restore/repair portions of the current courthouse. The board will discuss a resolution at their next Commission meeting, June 18 at 10:00 am.

Tobin Morris, Dougherty and Associates informed the board that the mill levy for the $11.9 million bond would likely start below $0.80/$1000 and would decrease every year with valuation growth.
