Courthouse landscaping plan presented for review

A landscaping plan for the grounds of the Franklin County Courthouse, prepared by the Cypress Basin Master Gardeners Association (CBMG), was presented for review to members of the Franklin County Commissioners Court last week.

District Clerk Ellen Jaggers has been the leader in seeking professional design, contacting the county and state historical associations, and coming up with a cost estimate for the project. For details about this project, see the May 3 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
