New Clark County Courthouse in works

Work is underway to build a new courthouse in Clark County.

Crews have removed these trees from the grounds and have already erected this chain link fence around the historic property.

County commissioner Jerry Neyens {Nigh-ens} says demolition of the building will begin in December.

Then around the first of the year the county will open bids for the construction of the facility.

Crews will begin the building the new courthouse in the spring...with a completion date in the Fall 20-12.

County employees who worked in the courthouse are now housed in the former Orbit Inn Restaurant on East Main Street.
