If we move forward with building a new courthouse, the BOCC is considering a plan which currently proposes that the existing courthouse be torn down. Construction of the existing courthouse was completed in 1952 and since then there have been three additions to the building, seven significant remodels and a variety of ongoing maintenance repairs. The county has invested a lot of money in the courthouse building over the years, but the original structure is now 64 years old and today it is in a state of considerable disrepair. Some of the problems are difficult, if not impossible, to properly address given that it was built for the needs of the county during the 1950s and not for today's needs.
