Redding CALIF- Gov. Jerry brown's planned budget has made an allocation for a new Shasta County Courthouse in Redding. This new proposed building would house all of Shasta County's court administrators as well as replace the aging and worn out current building on Court Street. The new building supposed to be right across the street from the current building and that the site is ready to build on once the budget is approved. There are a lot of road blocks for the funding between now and June when the budget must be voted on however there are many that are optomistic and excited about the prospect of the new court house. If the budget passes construction could begin as early as July 1st of this year. Once the new court house is built, the old one will be given to other county agencies as well as having the option to converting court rooms into jail beds to expand the overpopulated attached jail. The Governor's budget proposal will go through rounds of cuts by the Governor himself and by both the California Assembly and the Senate before being passed in June. Only time will tell if Redding and Shasta County will get a beautiful new courthouse for the public to enjoy.

We're cooling down next week with the chance for rain. Before we get there, we look to stay sunny with mild temperatures.
