LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - The Mohave County Board of Supervisors is holding off on spending $2 million to hire an architect who would design a new courthouse.

Today’s News-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1iKGc1B) supervisors voted Monday to deny funding an architect for the $20 million project, which includes designing a new courthouse and remodeling the historic building in Kingman.

Officials nixed architect funding during the budget process last year. Some supervisors say reconsidering the funds in April may give the county enough time to assess finances and approve funds while maintaining regular business payments.

Some argue the courthouse was a priority when the county pursued a quarter-cent sales tax that expires this decade. Mohave County plans to spend the $18 million generated by the tax so far on jail debt.
