Flagstaff looks at ways to finance new courthouse

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Flagstaff may be able to finance a new courthouse
without having to ask voters to approve millions of dollars in new bonds.

The Arizona Daily Sun says the Flagstaff City Council
will be asked to approve a plan to put four parcels up for sale.

City officials are hoping to sell about 50 acres of city-owned land in order to
help finance the private construction of a new courthouse and adjacent parking
garage in downtown Flagstaff.

The council will decide next Tuesday whether to move forward on the sale of the
properties.

Two years ago, city voters rejected $23 million in new bonds to build a new
courthouse.

Last year, city officials estimated the entire project would still cost close
to $25 million.
