County Commission Meeting

Houston County Commissioners are voting Monday whether to grant an extension for the courthouse renovation project.

Clark Construction Company officials wanted an extension until August without paying a $500 a day penalty for missing the deadline.

The project was to be completed the end of April.

County Commissioners rejected the appeal for an extension, meaning the $500-a-day fine will be accessed from May 1.

The fine is already $20,000 and will go up $500 each day until the courthouse renovation is complete.
