County Starts Design Work on New Murfreesboro Courts

The Rutherford County Commission has appropriated $5 million to design a new judicial building and seek property for the project’s $7 million parking garage. According to the Daily News Journal, Mayor Ernest Burgess hopes to have a new building in place for the fast-growing county by late 2017 on the east side of Maple Street, a block north of the existing Judicial Building on the Public Square in Murfreesboro.
