Court officer: Courthouse site being handled correctly

As noted in your Sept. 15 editorial, Stanislaus County urgently needs a new courthouse. Because of the state’s fiscal crisis, the Modesto project has undergone numerous delays. The site selection process has been reviewed by the court and the project’s community advisory group – which has been working with the state project team for nearly three years – as well as the State Public Works Board. The process has also been repeatedly covered in your newspaper. Restarting the process now would further delay this much-needed courthouse project, add to taxpayer expense and possibly jeopardize the project’s future funding.
