Smith County Commissioners Redesign Courthouse Lay-Out

Smith County Commissioners called a special meeting Monday to discuss how they can alleviate overcrowding at Smith County Courthouse. The county already owns a building on 200 Ferguson Street, which was purchased to solve the courthouse's spacing problems.

Commissioners are expected to decide what offices and courtrooms stay in the courthouse, and which ones will be moved to the Ferguson building. The county will use the help of an architectural firm to redesign their space.
