SELAH, WA. -- Imagine paying your bills next to accused criminals. That's what the City of Selah is working to change at their city hall building.
Reconstruction is almost complete on a second entrance to the court house. This will allow for a private entrance to the court room for arraignment and a public entrance for all other business. City leaders say it's a welcome change.
"(We will) put a metal detector at the front and have the ability to be safer and keep everybody more out of harms way," City of Selah Administrator David Kelly said.
The price tag for the construction was $35,000. The work is expected to be finished in the next 30 days.
