Kane County Puts Brakes on Courtroom Expansion Plans

The Kane County Board has stopped plans to address issues at the courthouses in Kane County which would have expanded the Judicial Center in St. Charles, converted two third floor courtrooms into one, and installed a new elevator in the courthouse in Geneva.  The expanded courtroom on the third floor would have benefited the civil division by providing for a larger courtroom which is required in civil cases in which there are multiple plaintiffs and defendants with many sets of lawyers.  The elevator in Geneva is also in need of replacement and this has been delayed as has the plan to expand the Judicial Center in St. Charles. One of the Board members noted that the cost for the new elevator in Geneva has already been dropped by $43,000 and are hoping to get further reductions for the judicial center and courtroom expansion projects in St. Charles.

The Kane County Board is scheduled to take up these matters again in October.
