Santa Rosa County adds third location for new courthouse

The Santa Rosa County commissioners  added a third location for a new county judicial center in downtown Milton.

The current courthouse is in Milton, but it needs to be replaced.
The newly added location is the land behind the existing courthouse---however that land is in a flood zone.
   
The architectural contractor for the land told the county that they  could still build the courthouse there---it would just add an additional million dollars to the final cost of the building.
   
The two other locations chosen are outside the city limits.
Voters will decide this fall on a preferred location, and whether to approve a local option sales tax to pay for construction.
