Douglas County Law and Justice Facility.

EAST WENATCHEE — County officials will move into the new Law and Justice Center in East Wenatchee next month, but first will give the public a chance to tour the facility on 19th Street.

On Monday, November 4th at 2 p.m., there will be a ribbon cutting with self-guided tours to follow. Construction of the building cost about $8 million dollars.
