City Council was pleased to learn tonight that the $35.4 million courthouse project is currently $1 million under budget.
Bill Downey, managing principal of Downey and Scott construction management services, gave council a status report on where the project is in each of its four phases. That’s when he announced the project has come in under budget thus far for construction and furniture, fixtures and equipment.
Councilmen Fred Howe and Brad Ellis expressed pleasure on the finances. Ellis asked if Downey thought the budget would finish under budget.
