Courthouse undergoes final safety test
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Duval County Courthouse went through it's final fire safety test tonight, but city leaders aren't in a hurry to tell you how it went.
Originally Action News was told our cameras would be allowed in for the fire test but later we were told no access would be granted and that city leaders weren't going to speak about it.
The courthouse has failed multiple fire inspections since it opened in 2012.
The city says it passed a partial test on Tuesday.That's after a test in May revealed continuing problems with the fire doors that are supposed to shut in case of an emergency.
Turner Construction, the company that built the courthouse, is no longer responsible for any of the warranty work. That means taxpayers are going to foot the bill for any future problems with the courthouse.
City council president Bill Gulliford said he was not sure why our cameras weren't allowed in.
