It seems Seneca County and Tiffin will have a joint city/county justice center in the future. The only questions are where and when? The Courier reports county commissioner Jeff Wagner is in support of the plan but wants to hold off on construction until 2018. Commissioner Fred Zoeller says he wants to move forward now, before construction costs go up.
There’s also the question of where the county would build the new facility. A Tiffin property owner has suggested the site of a former junior high school building. A study released earlier this month said the new building should be built on the site of the old 1884 courthouse.
The commissioners expect the project will cost $8.5 million. The county would be on the hook for $6.4 million of that price tag.
