New federal courthouse in Panama City

PANAMA CITY – The Juvenile Justice Facility on 11th Street could soon be home for the new federal courthouse in Panama City. At Tuesday’s Bay County Commission meeting, county officials announced that Bay County was chosen and the process is moving forward to turn the current Juvenile Justice Facility into the Federal Courthouse. While the new juvenile courthouse is being built, the personnel from the 11th Street facility will temporarily move into the former Panama City Hall.
