Courthouse options discussion date set
Updated on: 03.17.14

The Ad Hoc Courthouse Fact-finding Committee has set a date of Monday, March 31 at 6 p.m. to present to the community what its learned so far about options for renovating, expanding and/or moving the Brown County Courthouse.

The meeting will be in the lower level of the Brown County Public Library. All are welcome to hear answers to taxpayers' initial questions, posed when they defeated last year's courthouse renovation and expansion plan.

Over the past six months, the fact-finding committee has been investigating many options that taxpayers said they wanted to learn more about, including whether or not building a new courthouse next to the Brown County Law Enforcement Center would be feasible.

The committee intends to present cost comparisons of various options and ideas for what could be done with the current historic courthouse downtown if a new one would be built, and encourage people to discuss the facts and ask more questions.

Several documents will be available for public inspection before and during the meeting. As they become available, they will be posted in advance under the "hot topics" section of bcdemocrat.com.
