It has been over two months since the County Board formally received a report from its citizen Facilities Evaluation and Planning Committee. But in its first scheduled discussions of the county buildings, the Board "hit the ground running."

Despite the fact the Committees recommendation was to move the courthouse, on an initiative led by Board Chair Helen Bicknese and Commissioner Harry Root, reinforced by a motion from Commissioner Marc Prestby, the Board voted 4 to 1 to remain at the courthouse and upgrade the building.

"I ran on the assumption that we are going to stay here," announced Commissioner Prestby. "I havent changed my mind."

"My thought is to stay here," added Chairwoman Bicknese.
