To the editor:
It is very disturbing to read that one of our county officials thinks it would be a good idea to build a new courthouse. Really? Our county has enough money to build a new building but not do upkeep on the beautiful building we have?
Truly if they’re thinking of building new because of excess funds, it would be wonderful to have our tax levy reduced. The taxes on property in this county are ridiculously high.
I’m so glad our state government didn’t abandon our beautiful historical capitol. So please don’t even think of building a new building that would never equal our stately courthouse. Do the maintenance it needs, and do it now.
