Hancock County may sue over courthouse work

Frustrated with renovation work to the third floor of the courthouse, Hancock County officials are considering a lawsuit.

The commissioners moved into closed executive session this afternoon to discuss the problems with judges Joseph Niemeyer and Reginald Routson, representatives of RCM Architects, Findlay, and the construction companies. Assistant Prosecutor Cindy Land also was involved in today’s meeting.

Officials did not discuss the nature of the problems publicly.

About $1 million in renovations to the third floor of the Hancock County Courthouse are nearly complete.

The project was funded mostly through court user fees, saved by the clerk of courts and the common pleas courts for 10 years. The renovations are meant to make the third floor of the courthouse safer and more efficient.
