Iberville Parish courthouse to close amid upgrades
PLAQUEMINE - The Iberville Parish Courthouse is shutting down for about 12 days beginning Tuesday as contractors make $3.1 million in upgrades to the building's air conditioning system.
Parish officials have had to line up temporary quarters for several agencies now housed at the courthouse, including Parish President J. Mitchell Ourso and his staff and the sheriff's office.
Ourso says the building's air conditioning system is about 35 years old. He says the building will be inaccessible to the public through Aug. 8.
During that time, all parish offices that use the building will be temporarily relocated to other facilities.
