Public tours of the Johnson County Courthouse in downtown Olathe will get underway on Monday, July 11, and continue each month into early November.
The tours and informational presentations are being planned for the following reasons:
- to provide opportunities for the public to learn more about the existing courthouse, with a growing list of safety and security concerns and structural issues;
- the proposed construction of a new courthouse and coroner facility; and
- a quarter-cent, 10-year public safety sales tax question on the November 8th general election ballot to fund both projects.
Representatives from Johnson County District Court and the Facilities Management Department will lead the tours and presentations. Representatives from the District Attorney’s Office, Board of County Commissioners, County Managers Office, and Facilities Management Department will be available to answer questions from the public.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the problems that would be solved with a new courthouse, see for themselves some of the issues/concerns of the existing courthouse, receive information, ask questions, and provide input.
Tour times will be: 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on the following dates:
- Monday, July 11
