Tuesday, February 17, 2015
Tiffin, Ohio. Today, the Seneca County Board of Commissioners unanimously moved to go forward with the Justice Center Project on the Courthouse Square site. The Commissioners reviewed the studies of both Burgess and Niple and the Gossman Group and concluded the best alternative for the citizens of Seneca County was a new building on the Courthouse Square. Key reasons for their conclusion included:
Cost projections being $3.7 million more
to renovate the older structure instead of building a new one. Funds to fill the gap are not guaranteed.
Building costs and interest rates could increase if the project did not move forward in a timely fashion. Additionally, the probability of staying on/near budget is much higher with a new building than it is with the reconfiguration of an older structure.
Building in the center of Tiffin will enhance the downtown business environment and potentially spur additional investment in that area.
The new building will be designed for easy accessibility and for the safety and security of the citizens, while providing one clear focal point for Justice services.
“The county has had a need to address our Juvenile/Probate Court space for some time. It’s time to start working on the solution.” said Holly Stacy, President of the Board of Commissioners. She added, “We welcome the City of Tiffin with open arms if they would like the Tiffin/Fostoria Municipal Court to be part of the Justice Center.”
All four judges were in attendance at the Commissioners session and each agreed that a new structure on the Courthouse Square is the best option for the Justice services in Seneca County. Seneca County’s top law enforcement officer, Sheriff William Eckelberry, also identified that this is the safest and most secure plan for the protection of the citizens of Seneca County.
