Courts building Elkhart

The Elkhart County courts building in downtown Elkhart will be tied to the county-owned fiber optic network.

GOSHEN — County officials approved a $230,000 fiber optic connection to help courts prepare to resume jury trials this year.

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners on Monday approved a $230,000 project to tie the courts building in downtown Elkhart to the county-owned fiber optic network. The building is currently served by older, above-ground lines, which don’t offer the dependability needed to stream court hearings over the internet, said County Administrator Jeff Taylor.
