The courthouse in LaPorte will not be renovated.....at least for now.

There was a proposal to renovate and add onto the courthouse.......

The addition would connect it with the county complex.......and provide

additional office space and more security.

But.....since the courthouse in Michigan City is going to be renovated and

added onto....the decision was made to hold off on the work in LaPorte.

One reason is cost.

Some officials are also not convinced there's a need for more space

at the facilities in LaPorte.

County council president Randy Novak says the LaPorte is not dead.

It just won't be pursued at least for the near future.....

The need for more space was also questioned because of plans to move

adult probation from the courthouse to the basement of the county complex.
