COURTHOUSE RENOVATIONS: $81m Project Underway
Work is underway on a multi-million dollar renovation of the Polk County Courthouse.
Crews are cleaning and replacing stone on the outside of the building as part of the first phase of the project.
Crews will also renovate the former Wellmark building and the Polk County Jail downtown.
Completing the entire project will take seven years.
Last fall, voters said yes to borrowing $81-million for the renovations.
