The 16-million dollar project will give the courthouse some much needed extra space.

New county commission offices, new court rooms and offices. It will also make room for criminal holding cells for the Cass County Sheriff's. It's the first addition to the more than 100-year old courthouse since the 1980's.

PAUL LANEY - Cass County Sheriff: “From our end of it, its going to be huge and not so much from office space. We don't gain any office space at all out of this, but what we do gain is a true modern state of the art holding facility.”

The project is scheduled to be complete next May.
