BRAWLEY — Even though the state will cease Superior Court operations in Brawley when a new courthouse opens in El Centro next year, the building will not sit vacant because it is owned by the county and already houses offices for several of its agencies, a county official said.

Moreover, the county could take over the space in the building at 220 E. Main St. now being used by the court, Gilbert Rebollar, county public information officer, stated in an email.
