(Michigan City, IN) -Improvements to the Michigan City courthouse are moving ahead again. The start of the 22 million dollar project was put on hold in March. Due to COVID-19, officials wanted to see if it was something the county could still afford.
After taking a look at the money coming in, officials say it’s still affordable even under the worst-case scenario. The LaPorte County Commissioners gave the green light today. Commissioner Rich Mrozinski says a lot of money had already spent getting ready for construction so there was really no turning back. The project will now go out for bids soon.
Officials say the cost actually comes down from a lot of people needing work right now.
