Special Watertown Council Meeting Called, Judge Will Be There

Posted: Updated:

A special Watertown City Council meeting has been called for Monday and Judge James Tormey will be there.

He's the administrative judge telling city officials a second courtroom is needed, and soon. 

He set March 15 as a preliminary deadline to get a plan, or the city's state aid could be in jeopardy

Tormey lashed out at city hall, saying Watertown has been dragging its feet on the issue. 

Building a second city courtroom will cost Watertown millions of dollars.

Some say the city can't afford it, while others say the city doesn't need the extra courtroom. 

However, Tormey is the one who decides. 

The special meeting is Monday at 1 p.m.
