Courthouse renovation money, Marina Street building on agenda
Scott Orr
The Daily Courier

PRESCOTT - The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will discuss the final phase of the courthouse renovation project, what might be done with the county's now-vacant building on Marina Street, and more about the fiscal year 2012-13 budget in its Monday meeting.

The courthouse project is progressing, and changes that make up the second phase of the job are going on now. Phase 3 would include repair and stabilization of the granite staircases on all four sides of the building; repairs to the stucco and terra cotta exterior finishes; and new windows to match the originals, among other fixes.

It will likely cost nearly $1.7 million to do all the repairs on the list, but the board could decide to cherry-pick certain higher priority items to save money. The project was estimated to cost about $2 million in 2011, but $1.8 million has already been spent on the first two phases.

The fate of a vacant county building at 500 S. Marina St. may become a bit clearer if the board approves a $31,000 contract with Baumruk Architecture of Prescott to analyze the 1920s-era structure.

Board members who toured the building in April came back with more questions than answers, and decided they wanted to have it evaluated by professionals who could tell them whether it makes more economic sense to rehabilitate the building or tear it down.

Also on the agenda:

• A plan advanced by Management Information Systems Director Michael Holmes that would allow live webcasting of Supervisors' meetings at no cost to the county by sharing equipment;

• A study session on the Yavapai County Water Advisory Committee, which has been the subject of some controversy recently, as Prescott and Prescott Valley have voted to tell the other members they'll quit if they can't have their dues cut in half;

• A study session on the county's fiscal year 2012-13 budget.

Monday's meeting starts at 9 a.m., at the County Administrative Building Services building, 1015 Fair St. in Prescott, and can be viewed by teleconference at the County Administrative Services Complex in Cottonwood at 10 S. 6th St.
