Maury County Considers New Justice Center

A new $24 million criminal justice center was approved by the Maury County Building Committee yesterday, the Columbia Daily Herald reports. The project was greatly reduced in size since it was last considered in order to make it more cost effective. The 95,556-square-foot center was cut down more than 21,000 square feet and will no longer include a parking garage or office for county staff. The number of courtrooms also was reduced.
