JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
The cost of cooling and heating the new Duval County Courthouse could get taxpayers heated up.
The Times-Union reports utility bills in the new courthouse are four times as high as those in the old courthouse.
That's not exactly unexpected, though -- the new courthouse is two-and-a-half times the size of its predecessor.
In September, JEA billed the courthouse over $358,000.
That compares to just under $89,000 for the old courthouse in September of 2011.
Based on its September bill, the new courthouse is on pace to cost taxpayers $4.3-million in utility bills over the course of a year.
