Municipal Court Purchasing Former OBES Building

By  | 

The city of Marietta is one step closer to owning the former Ohio Bureau of Employment Services building.

Judge Janet Welch said she signed an offer Friday for the Marietta Municipal Court to purchase the building for half a million dollars.

The money comes from a special projects fund, and Welch said it's a good investment.

Judge Welch also said there are still many legal hurdles to overcome, but that if all goes well, she hopes to be moved in sometime in 2010.
