Applause for Courtroom Expansion

(La Porte County, IN) - The newly renovated and expanded $20 million courthouse project in Michigan City is getting high marks.


During last night's La Porte County Commissioners meeting, former Commissioner Dr. Vidya Kora patted several elected officials on the back for how the courthouse turned out. Kora was a La Porte County Commissioner when the decision was made to renovate and double the size of the century-old courthouse on U.S 12.


Kora specifically congratulated La Porte County Treasurer Joie Winski, La Porte County Council members Randy Novak and Mark Yagelski, along with La Porte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski for putting in long hours on getting the project off the ground.


“It has come out very, very well and I’m proud of that project,” said Kora, who’s currently Chairman of the La Porte County Democrat Party.

The courthouse was expanded to ease cramped conditions and house county offices once located in a former strip mall on West 8th Street in Michigan City.
