Mayor Thomas Keleher says “the project will not only include moving the seating capacity from 60 people to 200 people, but it will also expand the clerk’s area. The judge will have a separate room and the Public Defender and the Municipal Prosecutor will have little conference offices right in the lobby to make it private and accessible.”

Keleher says the Oak Avenue Court expansion is one element of a three-part project that also calls for the construction of a new animal shelter and the maintenance of Police Headquarters totaling $5.9 million dollars. The project is being funded by an earlier bond ordinance as part of the 2010 capital budget.

He says the anticipated court room renovations are slated for completion by October of 2013.
