(BROWNSTOWN) - Construction of the Jackson County Judicial Center is underway in Brownstown.

Officials say the new facility will cost around $12.14 million and is being built at 109 South Sugar Street.

The two-story facility should be completed in November 2018

Earlier this year, Brownstown, Crothersville and Medora signed an agreement with the county to provide 25 percent of their shares of local option income tax economic development revenue annually for the project. Seymour City Council members, however, unanimously voted against entering into the agreement.

A county economic development income tax at a rate of 25 cents per $100 of income was put in place in 1998 to help fund construction of the jail and juvenile center, both of which are in Brownstown.

At that time, each of the county's four municipalities also received revenue from the tax and agreed to give up 25 cents of their shares to help with the project. That $10 million project will be paid off in 2018, freeing up revenue to fund the judicial center.
