EAGLE RIVER - An old jail doesn't exactly make for great office space.  But some Vilas County departments have used those parts of the courthouse as offices for decades.  That makes construction that started this week a welcome distraction.

Work to tear down the Social Services wing of the courthouse started Wednesday.  Crews will build a two-story expansion on the east side of the courthouse.

That will allow Social Services, Veterans Services, the Commission on Aging, Tourism and Publicity, and other departments to move into the same building.  The expansion will also include new break rooms and conference rooms.
