BOCC and LMc and the architect and two bond experts discuss bonding to pay for the renovation of the new county court system as well as other buildings owned by Public Works. They discuss the total amount (between $10,000,000 and $20,000,000) length of the bond and whether to do one bond or two that would be several years apart.
