County justice center plans moving forward slowly

IOWA CITY– Voters in Johnson County should see a proposal for a $39 million bond issue in their voting booth next year.

VJ Engineering has sent the final plans to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State Historical Preservation Office (SHPO). Both agencies have to review and approve the plans before the project can move forward.
