Board praised for new courthouse planning
Chief Judge recognizes non-partisan effort to improve public safety
"Much work was done over the last several months and especially the past few weeks," said Chief Judge Schoenstedt. "The entire county board, both sides of the aisle, along with County Executive Larry Walsh and his staff worked tirelessly to come up with the plan to fund several necessary capital projects. Their leadership and overall encouragement of all county board members to put aside their differences and bring their ideas to the table has been inspiring. The bonds that will be issued will be paid for by current revenue streams, without raising sales or real estate taxes."
