Some delays in the final work at the Defiance County Courthouse.
Offices which had planned to move to temporary quarters this month while the courthouse is being renovated won’t be moving now until sometime in late September.
That means the planned bid opening date is now pushed back as well. Bids were expected to be opened, and a contract was planned to have been awarded this month for the $4.65 Million renovation project at the court house.
Work was set to begin this summer.
The delay stems from the fact that the common pleas court, probate/juvenile court and clerk of courts office had been scheduled to move temporarily to the former municipal court building in Defiance on July 18–20. But that building’s elevator isn’t operating properly, and work to get it going now will delay the move until the week of Sept. 22.
