SONOITA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The fate of the justice court in Sonoita is up in the air, at least for another month.
The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors was expected to take a vote on the courthouse during a meeting Wednesday, Feb. 21.
But the board did not reach a decision and set another meeting for Wednesday, March 21.
Santa Cruz County Manager Jennifer St. John is proposing to close the court as a cost-cutting measure.
St. John said the closure would save the county about $200,000.
However, residents have argued closing the courthouse is not the answer.
If the Sonoita facility is closed, a courthouse in Nogales would serve all of Santa Cruz County.
