Maintenance Director Jeff Johnston brought up the issue after an assessment was received about masonry repairs at the courthouse last month. The limestone needs to be repaired around the perimeter of the courthouse as it has come apart. Mortar joints were found to be defective, eroded or missing. The stairs also need to be repaired.
The base quote given for repairs were just over $83,600.
Commissioner Terry Young suggested holding off any decision on the repairs until the ADA requirements, security issues and a single point of entry are researched further. He said he’d rather look at it as a bigger project than spend extra money to repair the issues. It could come at the beginning of the year when the commissioners look at the budget.
The commissioners agreed to table any decision until next year.
