No formal votes were taken, but Columbus County commissioners reached a consensus during a workshop Monday night to continue to devote the historic courthouse here to judicial functions.

Commissioners will make a formal decision at their upcoming meeting on Monday, but they have tentatively decided to retain the two-courtroom configuration on the second floor of the historic structure, move Superior Court judge offices from Courthouse Square to the second floor of the old courthouse, and move the District Attorney’s office from Courthouse Square to the first floor of the historic courthouse.

They will seek bids from architects for tweaking plans obtained several years ago for renovating the old facility, renovations that were put on hold when bids for the work came in higher than had been budgeted.

See Thursday’s edition of The News Reporter for more details.
