During last night's city council meeting, council voted for the purchase of the former AEP building with only Bill Bonner and Dustin Proehl voting against.  During the citizen participation portion of the meeting the AEP building was the hot topic, with many speaking for and against the purchase of the building.  The former AEP building will be used as the Municipal Courthouse.  The building is supposed to be financed by the city through its court fees so that no extra burden is put on the city's taxpayers.

What do you think about this decision?  Do you think the taxpayers will be affected by this decision?  Do you think the taxpayers will be affected financially by this purchase?  Do you feel that there is a need for a new Municipal Court building?  Are there other, better options?  Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

Do you agree with the purchase of the AEP building?

What was wrong with the court building that we currently have? This building doesn't even look like a courthouse...

In todays economic times do we need to spend more money? It wasnt that long ago when the city was in such debt that the state was going to take over because the city couldnt balance thier budget. They then wanted to reduce public services to balance the budget. How many Police and firefighters is this building going to cost the taxpayers?

The current building does not comply with current court standards for buildings in both safety and access for the disabled.

Ah so when my house is not safe I just abandon it and buy another one. Thats the ticket. I can guarantee you that if you put this to a vote it would have been shot down as well. The people of Chillicothe want their money used wisely. Not spent foolishly on a new palace for King Sulzer.
