GOSHEN — County officials chose to move ahead with site selection for a consolidated court project after hearing last-second pleas from residents and Elkhart city leaders.
The Elkhart County Council on Saturday voted to go ahead with the purchase of a 33-acre property at C.R. 17 and U.S. 33. The Elkhart County Commissioners recommended the location, which had a price of $585,000 at the time they approved a draft purchase agreement in June, over another one being considered at C.R. 17 and U.S. 20.
