Potter County commissioners move forward on plan for new courthouse
After securing $54 million in certificates of obligation earlier this year, Potter County commissioners recently approved a $4 million contract for design services for a new county courthouse building. Architects will be responsible for developing the courthouse design as well as construction and bid documents.
The $64 million project would build a new courts building to address security, sewer, HVAC system, and tile issues at the current Potter County District Courts Building, which county officials identified as their No. 1 priority in the county’s strategic plan. County officials said they expect to solicit bids for the construction project in March 2020.
