It’s still on track…
The Defiance County courthouse renovation project is moving forward on schedule, despite a number of questions raised during county commissioners’ meeting earlier this week, and some red tape in securing a temporary location for one courthouse office.
Architects met with commissioners Monday for about 90 minutes to go over some questions that cropped up about some of the design specs involving the nearly $4.65 Million project.
However, the plan remains for construction to begin in early August, and a contract is scheduled to be awarded on July 10.
One matter remained unresolved however on Monday. County officials are waiting for official word from the state on plans to temporarily house the county title department in downtown Defiance.
A lease for the building has been secured, and now county officials are just waiting for confirmation from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles in Columbus that the location is acceptable.
