Middletown takes possession of courthouse

Soon to be Middletown City Courthouse

MIDDLETOWN – The City of Middletown has finally closed on the purchase of the former federal courthouse it plans to convert to the city’s court facilities.

Mayor Joseph DeStefano said the state has reimbursed the city for the purchase and now plans are being finalized to remodel and expand the building.

“We have received reimbursement for the acquisition portion of the courthouse, which is about $2.2 million,” he said. Final design documents should be ready in about a month and a half and once approved by the Office of Court Administration, work can begin.

Conversion to Middletown city courthouse will require construction of a second courtroom, which Albany has given its approval to, subject to final design.
