GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) —
Hall County is considering spending $600,000 to buy a temporary
courthouse to use while it upgrades the heating and air conditioning
system at its current courthouse.
County supervisors will decide Tuesday whether to buy the former
Workforce Development building in Grand Island from the city.
The county used to co-own the building with the city, and it has been used for several different purposes over the years.
County board chairwoman Pam Lancaster says the building would work well
as a courthouse while the existing building undergoes a year-long $1
The county looked at doing the renovations
while continuing to use the courthouse, but contractors said doing that
would double the cost of the project.
