New Courthouse Bids Are Pleasant Surprise

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

It was all good news Tuesday afternoon when the bids for building the new Lincoln County courthouse were opened.  A total of five bids were received.  Of those, the highest was $36.6 million; the lowest was $31.5 million.  

Commissioners will now have to get the approval of the North Carolina Local Govt. Commission before issuing bonds to pay for the project.  They are likely to vote on the bids by early May and the structure is expected to be built in time for occupancy by early 2022.

The current Lincoln County courthouse was built in 1923. It has served the County for just under a hundred years. The new facility will have room for some growth and may also last a century. 

The new courthouse will be directly behind the Lincoln County Health Dept. but it will face northward. A new road will be put in place for an entrance to the courthouse parking area.

No decision has yet been made on the use of the current courthouse once the new one is completed. Some have suggested a museum, others have hinted it might become a second facility for meetings, dinners, etc. that are currently held at the Citizens Center.
