Posted: Updated:

The Board of Supervisors heard the results of a $36,000 study it funded to analyze and determine the best place for the courts to be.

The board was presented with two options. One would keep the courts downtown with the use of the Levy Opera House.  The second would split the courts, leaving one downtown and moving the other to the McIntire location. Both options would cost the county between $40 million and $50 million.
