Last week, the Marion County Project Development Board approved bids for the various aspects of the construction of the planned Marion County judicial center.
The project board received the bids during a special-called meeting Jan. 6. The board members approved the bids during another special-called meeting Jan. 13.
Marion County Judge-Executive John G. Mattingly, the chairman of the project board, said the bids came in at or under budget.
"I think that's a factor of where we are in this economy," he said.
