New Pullman city hall will lack courtroom


December 6, 2018

Whitman County commissioners learned last week that Pullman does not plan to include a courtroom at the new city hall.

Pullman sessions of district court have been conducted in a room at the present city hall.

The commissioners Monday discussed possible options for a new district court site. The first option they discussed was moving all court sessions to Colfax.

The second option discussed was to rent a space in Pullman for court sessions. Commissioner Art Swannack said he doesn’t like the idea of renting a space.

Swannack said he felt the judges should be consulted when deciding what course the county should take.

Judge Doug Robinson, who will retire at the end of the year, plans to meet with the commissioners on the topic.
