WARSAW — Extensive renovations have begun this week inside the Kosciusko County Justice Building in Warsaw.

New carpet, wallpaper and flooring are planned for much of the building — except in the jail — and the project is expected to cost an estimated $1,889,941.

County officials chose to use money from its federal American Recovery Plan Act for the improvements.

The work will be done in ten phases and is expected to continue until April of 2025.

County administrator Marsha McSherry said initial work began earlier this week in the Circuit Court area. Furniture, computers and personnel are being moved this week and removal of old carpet and wallpaper will begin Monday.

The first few phases all involve the second floor and will continue through much of the summer.

McSherry updated the county commissioners on the work Tuesday morning.

The work is expected to be one of the bigger, more complex undertakings in the county’s history.

McSherry said she appreciates the cooperative approach as they enter into the work.
