Courts – what’s next?

We’ll have more this weekend on the situation with the city courts. Among other things, we’ll be looking at the bigger picture of how the city will modernize all three court facilities. For reference, here is the consultant’s report the City Council saw this spring laying out some possible scenarios for a modern courts complex. Council members will likely be hearing more about this from the city manager in August, but we’ll catch up with them this week to talk about how urgent they think this project is, what the city can afford, and whether embarking on a $60 million courts project could affect other construction projects that had been planned.
