Bucks County officials are scaling back plans for a brand-new courthouse.

County Commissioners Wednesday voted 2-1 to approve changes to the Bucks County Justice Center.

They'll drop two courtrooms and ten conference rooms from the fifth floor of the eight-story building.

The move is expected to save the county $300,000 on the $84 million project.

Construction crews broke ground on the new courthouse in July of 2011.
