SHEBOYGAN — Work has begun on improvements to the Sheboygan County Courthouse.
In 2016, Sheboygan County Administrator Adam Payne appointed an Ad Hoc Committee charged with evaluating security and improvements at the Courthouse on North 6th Street. Courthouse employees were surveyed, with 90% responding that they favored having a centralized secured entrance.
The County Board authorized funding for one secured entrance equipped with scanning and x-ray equipment, video and officers.
Additional renovations will include a circle driveway, repairs to the front courthouse steps and a wheel chair ramp to accommodate handicapped access. Work is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
