(Michigan City, IN) - Construction could start soon on the courthouse in Michigan City.
The La Porte County Council Monday night approved financing for the project. Bids presently under review are expected to be approved next month.
The cost is not to exceed 23 million dollars under a cap imposed on the project. Council Rresident Randy Novak says the financing will be for 20-years with an option to retire the entire balance after 10-years.
The council also approved relocating all of the employees at the courthouse during the construction. Work is expected to begin in September.
The plan is to double the size of the Courthouse with this renovation, with an addition being built on the back of the century old structure.
