Downtown Sparta looks as though the likely choice for a new courthouse and jail after voters leaned that was in a referendum yesterday. That location beat out the Highway 71 location by about 500 votes.
County Board Chair Rick Irwin, said he was impressed with the almost 36% voter turnout. On a side note...Irwin himself lost his bid to retain his county board seat to Dale Greeno.....232-94.
