Goshen Courthouse

Elkhart County's courthouse in Goshen, along with the one in Elkhart, will be vacated by the courts in favor of a modern courthouse building at one of two locations along C.R. 17.

GOSHEN — County commissioners have two land purchase options to present this weekend for the construction of a consolidated courts building.

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners on Monday voted on a draft purchase agreement for land at C.R. 17 and U.S. 20. The 11.5-acre site has a price of just over $1 million.

Although I find no story in the Etruth, maybe it’s in the printed edition, Happy Veterens Day to all who have and are serving our great nation today. If like me you love your freedom, thank a vet.

Because they are Trumpers


Go back to Frisco, you can probably afford it now. Trumpers, really. Grow up or move out.


How the heck do the county officials get to decide to move the courthouses out of the downtowns of its cities of Goshen and Elkhart and plop them in one of tow non-walkable areas of the county without the support or mandate of the community members?


Bakerlaw....use your computer! Go to elkhartcounty.com. You should get your answer! There is a question about ....what does a county commissioner do in Indiana? Answer....Specifically, all commissioners have authority to pass ordinances in the broad areas: Controlling, maintaining and supervising county property including COURTHOUSES , jails and public offices. That's how the heck they get to decide. You can decide to vote them out!
