The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) awarded the construction contract for the New Federal Courthouse in Greenville. The award is a result of the commitment and partnership among GSA, the U.S. Courts, elected officials, and the local community.
Mayor Errick D. Simmons states, “The new federal courthouse in our downtown is a legacy project that will change the face of Greenville for decades.”
Congressman Bennie G. Thompson states, “On behalf of Mississippi’s 2nd District, I am elated to offer my support for the striking design of the new federal courthouse. The new building will brighten the city even more. The people of the Mississippi Delta deserve a first class courthouse that will accommodate other federal offices.”
Senator Roger Wicker states, “Its completion would modernize and make secure a crucial government function. I am glad GSA is working to ensure the construction moves forward, promote justice, and invigorates the city’s growing business district.”
U.S. Chief District Judge Debra Brown states, “We in the Northern District of Mississippi are ecstatic to reach this punctuation point in the long journey towards having our courthouse dreams become a reality.”
