Voters elect to replace fire-damaged courthouse
Published: April 9,2014
WALTHALL — Webster County voters overwhelmingly want supervisors to build a new courthouse in Walthall.
The nonbinding election was held yesterday.
County supervisors say they’ll use the non-binding referendum vote to help decide what steps should be taken before construction of any kind begins.
The old courthouse in Walthall suffered heavy damage in a fire in January 2013.
County officials say a private adjuster estimated renovation costs to be around $7 million, but an insurance company only wanted to pay $3 million.
