Augusta County: Renovate courthouse in Staunton or build new one in county?

By Lynn R. Mitchell

The subject of whether to renovate the historic Augusta County courthouse located in downtown Staunton or to construct a new one at the Government Center in Verona will be front and center on the agenda at the next Board of Supervisors work session on Tuesday, May 27. (Normally scheduled for Monday, the work session will be a day later due to Memorial Day.) Supervisor David Karaffa wrote a thoughtful piece about the pros and cons of renovating versus building (see Augusta County Courthouse decision).

It’s a discussion that’s sure to bring many opinions. Political reporter Bob Stuart has more in the News-Virginian after talking with Supervisor David Karaffa as well as Augusta Clerk of Court John B. Davis. Stuart also reveals that the issue could end up as a public referendum to be decided by voters.
