Committee recommends Cass Courthouse planA committee gave its seal of approval Wednesday for drawings laying out the $14.7 million west addition to the Cass County Courthouse.
The plans, which will be slightly revised following the meeting of the Cass County Building Committee and architects, will go before the Cass County Commission for a decision Monday.
If approved, contractors could break ground in the summer, with a target completion date in December 2011.
The addition would include new commission chambers and offices as well as two additional courtrooms and temporary office space for Cass County sheriff’s deputies. It would be linked to the Cass County Annex, across 10th Street, by a skywalk.
