Two resolutions to expand the Vilas county courthouse narrowly passed the county board this week.
An original resolution for $16 million dollars was amended after the board decided not to add the additional space for another courtroom at this time.
The board adopted a resolution first funding two phases of the expansion, known as 1 and 1B, at a price of more than $10 million. That would add just under 36,000 square feet for that cost. The board needed a two-thirds majority to pass that resolution which it did 15-4.
