Phase I of courthouse renovations will begin early January. River City Contracting of Fortson will begin courthouse renovations by replacing the entire roof of both the historic portion and the 1998 addition, replacing storm windows on the historic portion, repairing the front balcony and side canopies on the historic portion, cleaning and repairing the exterior surfaces, repairing the interior courtroom balcony in the historic portion, and repairing the foundation on the 1998 addition.
During construction, the courthouse will be fully operational. However, there will be scaffolding around portions of the courthouse, noise, paint odor, machinery, and workers. Please pardon the progress the county is making to repair the courthouse.
Construction is scheduled to be completed during late summer 2023.
The cost of Phase I is $3,508,077 and funded by SPLOST-2019 and federal American Rescue Plan (ARP) grant funds.
Subsequent phases will occur as funding becomes available.
