The historic Christian County Courthouse will see some renovations on the back side in the coming weeks after action by Christian Fiscal Court this morning.
An alley between the courthouse and the Alhambra Theater has been in dire need of repair for some time and Magistrate Jim Flemming says court decided now was the time made those fixes.

The project contract was awarded to the lowest bidder—Scott Murphy at 211-thousand dollars.
In other action, court approved a petition to close down a portion of Naomi Lane near Oak Grove at the request of a property owner.
