CLARKSBURG (AP) — All 55 county courthouses in West Virginia will be studied in the coming months to help local counties identify improvement priorities.
The West Virginia Courthouse Facilities Improvement Authority has awarded a $600,000 contract to Silling Associates of Charleston to conduct the study.
Authority executive director Melissa Garretson Smith tells The Exponent Telegram that the project is expected to be completed by August 2013.
The study will analyze each courthouse’s condition and needs. It also will make recommendations and provide cost estimates.
Upshur County Administrator Willie Parker says the study will allow counties to prioritize projects.
