Seneca County to move money for courthouse

TIFFIN — With a long-term goal of building a courthouse, Seneca County Commissioners this week tentatively agreed to move $300,000 from the general fund to a fund earmarked for courthouse construction.

Seneca County Administrator Stacy Wilson said the board plans to vote on moving the funds when it meets Tuesday.

Seneca County and the city of Tiffin studying the feasibility of constructing a building that could house both Common Pleas Court and Tiffin Municipal Court. Commissioners started a construction fund last year with an initial deposit of $400,000.

The need for a new courthouse follows last year’s demolition of the county's historic 1884 courthouse that had been vacant for several years. Commissioners voted 2-1 to tear it down rather than renovate it as a group of preservationists had advocated.
