The Marshall County Commissioners have authorized the sale of old law bookcases that are no longer needed.
When asking for additional space for a legal resource center in the courthouse, Circuit Court Judge Curtis Palmer told the commissioners that the bookcases in the basement are about 20 years old and are of no use to any attorneys or court personnel.
The commissioners did declare them as unneeded property of the county in order to properly dispose of them. There are 72 bookcases.
The commissioners approved a motion to allow internal government agencies to have first choice and outside government agencies can pick up the book barristers on Feb. 16. They will see how many are left in order to put a price on them before they are sold to the general public.
