The original price for the Courthouse was 150-175 million. But the Mayor and the City Council all decided to butt in and make changes and redo the bidding process several times, thier interference at several points during the planning and construction, is what has caused the price of the project to keep going up, and they are continuing to do it to this day. Now to top that off City Council members are complaining that they are not being consulted in reference to the courthouse, makes me laugh, because since Mayor Brown has been in office all they have done is rubber stamp anything he proposes.

I don't know how others may feel about this travesty of justice, but whoever approved and authorized the building and waste of taxpayers money in this manner for this courthouse, should be the first person tried in it. I think that an adequated courthouse for a third of the price could have been built.
