Commissioners raise courthouse stakes

Authority's revised offer to buy building

A Ramsey commissioner says he’s hopeful the town’s courthouse will end up in public ownership.

The board met last night (Wednesday) and agreed to table a revised offer to buy the iconic building.

Home Affairs chiefs have put it and the land up for sale but the public are largely opposed to it being moved into private hands.

Eric Corkish says the mood among commissioners is very positive.
