Cassia’s Judicial Center Near Complete
BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — Commissioners for southern Idaho’s Cassia County say a new judicial complex is nearly complete. The Times-News reports the county began saving money 1998 to turn a former grocery store into the Cassia County Judicial Center after voters shot down a $3.7 million bond issue for a new building.
The remodeled structure is expected to open the week of Sept. 23. Commissioner Paul Christensen says county officials are excited that the building is paid for and that it hasn’t created any extra tax burden for residents. County Clerk Joe Larsen says the new building will cure a lot of the logistical problems presented by the old courthouse.
