From JH Votes Yes
Vote YES for security.
Teton County’s courthouse is more than fifty years old and has been called ‘unsafe’ and ‘unfit’ to meet community court, law enforcement and dispatch needs. The antiquated building and infrastructure make it extremely difficult to secure, susceptible to earthquakes and severe weather, and fail to provide adequate ADA access. Funding the planning, design, engineering, site preparation and preliminary construction costs to for a new or renovated Teton County Courthouse is critical to expanding the facility and supporting basic community functions.
