New Smyrna Beach Courthouse overhaul underway expenditures triple, shocking politicians

Volusia County's New Smyrna Beach Courthouse Annex is seen here in this file photo from December, 2017, just before the gavel fell for the final time here. Now, the building is getting a renovation so that tax, tag and title services, as well as sheriff's office deputies and property appraiser services that are now offered in the building next door on Canal Street can be consolidated at the former courthouse. The project, which is using federal Cares Act funding, needs to be largely complete by the end of December.

The New Smyrna Seashore Courthouse Annex is about to get an interior overhaul that’s anticipated to value far more than triple the initial estimates.

But because the job is currently being funded with federal coronavirus pounds, it’s also the quickest-moving project Volusia County Facilities Director Jim Corbett has at any time viewed.

The project is underway now and the county solutions — tax, tag and title, property appraiser and Volusia County Sheriff’s Business office — that are at the moment inside the county’s Canal Road offices at and about 111 Canal St. in downtown New Smyrna Seaside are predicted to start out moving into the previous courts making at 124 N. Riverside Drive by Dec. 31.

“The challenge has a incredibly, very limited timeline, close to 80 days,” claimed Corbett in a mobile phone interview previous 7 days. “So they are rockin’ and rollin’ and we’re seeking to get everyone off Canal Avenue below soon.”

Corbett stated the move is required.

“If you have been down Canal Avenue not long ago and seen 20 persons standing exterior the tax collector’s business, you know that they need that house,” mentioned Corbett at very last week’s County Council meeting. “They want that lobby to be able to sit in, in particular in inclement weather.”
