BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - The federal courthouse in Bay City is getting a new look.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Ludington says there are two projects. One involves renovating courtroom technology to accommodate evidence presentation, and the other is renovating the offices that support court operations.
Technology upgrades include annotation devices for the witness stand, a control panel for the judge, five monitors for the jury box and two large-screen monitors mounted on opposite walls.
Ludington says the cost of those renovations is about $200,000.
Bay City Times reports (http://bit.ly/xaNunI ) the office renovations are projected to wrap up in July and include relocating the pre-trial, probation and clerk's offices in the building and adding a training room and a fitness room.
That cost is estimated at $1.2 million.
