BAY COUNTY, Fla. — As the county continues to move forward on the courthouse moves in the area, more plans were approved to repair the Juvenile Justice Courthouse.
The courthouse is being converted and will serve as the new federal courthouse but before that needs repairs from Hurricane Michael.
Tuesday morning, the Bay County Commission approved two contracts to get the work done.
For repairs, the county approved a contract with GSE contractors for about $440,000 dollars.
For renovations, the commission went with a different company.
“On that, we picked a construction manager, All-State Construction and so they’ll be overseeing all the construction to convert it to the federal courthouse from the current Juvenile Justice Courthouse. It’ll have addition and lots of interior renovations so we’re excited to get it going,” said county commissioner Robert Carroll.
Carroll says they hope to have the project done by late 2020.
The county will also be building a brand new juvenile courthouse in downtown Panama City.
