For Willie Vader, the Johnson County Courthouse can't be demolished soon enough.
"That is the single biggest thing that could help downtown Olathe, what goes in there after that building comes down," Vader said.
He owns Vader's Bar and Deli on Cherry Street, just east of the courthouse. The courthouse is nearly 70 years old and will be replaced by a bigger, more up-to-date one that's currently being built a block north. The new courthouse is expected to open in early 2021, and the plan is to tear the old one down shortly after.
