The expense to renovate the former King Louie facility into the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center (tentatively set to open summer 2017) was a very small portion of the revenue needed for a courthouse, which the state requires the county to fund. Even without the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center project—which will replace the current aging Johnson County Museum facility and provide more and Johnson County Park and Recreation District program space—the county would still need additional revenue to fund building a new courthouse. The funds to renovate the former King Louie facility into the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center were covered through the existing county budget, which was done without a tax increase.
