Attempt To Seek Financing For Brown County Courthouse Renovations Fails

Last updated on Monday, September 16, 2013

(NASHVILLE) - The Brown County Commissioners’ attempt to seek financing for renovation and expansion of the historic Brown County Courthouse has failed.

By Friday afternoon, four days after the petition/remonstrance process ended, signatures for and against the estimated $6.5 million loan had not been certified.

But Brown County Clerk Beth Mulry and Auditor Glenda Stogsdill announced in a news release that "the outcome of the petition and remonstrance process is clear."

Less than 200 signatures were gathered in support of the proposed project, while more than 800 signatures against it had been verified as of 1 p.m. Friday.

"Both offices will continue to work through the certification as quickly as possible," a news release reported. "Final signature counts will be released when the certification is complete."
