First step taken toward Johnson County Courthouse construction

Construction of the new courthouse is a complex project that is expected to take four years. On June 1, the county deeded over a office building to the city for temporary use by city employees. The new courthouse will be built on land directly across Santa Fe Street to the north of the existing Johnson County Courthouse.
