Funding gap in plans to build new Livingston Parish courthouse

LIVINGSTON - People working on plans for a new Livingston Parish courthouse are considering changes to meet a $2 million funding gap.

Bids for the project came in earlier this month.  Architects involved in the plans say great steps were taken to make the project affordable, and options were built into the plans which could equal additional savings.

There is also hope the four offices which will call the courthouse home will help cover the costs.  They include the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office, the district attorney's office, the judges and the 21st Judicial District Clerk of Court.

The current courthouse is 70 years old. Vistors today say it is often packed with people, making court appearances take much longer. Plans also call for additional safety features for workers and the public.
