Factoring the cost

Augusta County is studying moving its courthouse from the historic location in downtown Staunton to Verona.
Where there's space.
And parking.
Both sides looked at the impact of the courthouse.
Staunton thinks it brings in $15,000/year in tax revenue.
Augusta County thinks the move will bring in $150,000/year in tax revenue.
Staunton thinks paying $5 million to help with renovation doesn't make sense.
Looks like the lawyers and judges will be packing up for Verona soon.
