Newark, Ohio Courthouse Construction Project

The Courthouse Construction Rumors

Newark, Ohio doesn’t have a hometown newspaper anymore. The paper is now a national conglomerate with an obvious agenda many years ago. We’re left to our own imaginations and rumors about what is happening in Licking County, Ohio.

Licking County, Ohio Courthouse construction.
A dumpster is pulled by a crane to the the top of The Licking County Courthouse.
A covering of plastic, sort of like a courthouse condom, is in place now. Workers appear from underneath to take out the trash. The crane lifts a dumpster to the workers like i the photo above.
 
I’ve heard rumors from $1 million to $10 million for a restoration of the courthouse. The county is claiming a need for a new courthouse designed for modern operation.
 
It is encouraging to see that the town’s focal point is being restored. With so many funds originating from the federal government, what is the need? The decisions are being made somewhere else anyhow.
 
I’ll keep watching the progress and see what type of town the quiet planners are giving us. It should be interesting.
