Lawsuit won’t derail Rock Island County Courthouse demolition

4 The Record

County Board Chair Brunk says legal matter only slows down ultimate result

Rock Island County Board members Richard Brunk and Drue Mielke joined 4 The Record this week. This is the second part of that conversation.

On to the courthouse. There was a point several months ago when it seemed like the building’s demolition was imminent.

Then came the lawsuit.

There were more talks recently, but no settlement.

Brunk and Mielke discussed why it isn’t worth exploring one more time to see if there’s a developer for the building, what the timeline is now and when they expect a decision from the court.
