The fund was established to make <br />grants available to counties for court facilities improvement and <br />maintenance projects. <br /> <br />As a result of our discussion, it is the recommendation of our group to <br />request $50,000 for the first of a multi-year carpet and paint upgrade for the <br />seven courtrooms, clerk of court space, judicial chambers, and associated <br />work space. This is approximately 25% of the funds needed to complete <br />this work. Cass County Courthouse operations would fund the required <br />25% match associated with this request. While the group understands that <br />nearly one-fifth of the State judiciary is housed in Cass County, it was the <br />feeling that our request would be reasonable for the first round of grant <br />applications. <br /> <br />At the county commission meeting on November 15th, I would ask that you <br />vote to approve these recommendations. Following the meeting, I will <br />complete the grant paperwork accordingly and will attach the November <br />15th commission minutes as an addendum to the application. <br /> <br />If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. <br /> <br />SUGGESTED MOTION: <br />Move to request $50,000 in funding from the Court Facilities Improvement <br />Grant Fund established by State law in the initial round of applications due <br />by December 31,2004. <br /> <br />K:\BJ\COURT IMPROVEMENT 11-10-04.doG <br />
