Grand jury rips courthouse condition
Friday, January 25, 2013
The Cole County Commission is planning to put together requests for bids on several improvement projects at county facilities, including sealing the exterior of the county courthouse, a project that at one time was estimated to cost as much as $1 million.
This comes after commissioners were given a report Thursday from the county grand jury, which took a tour of the facility and gave their recommendations on what should be done.
The tour took place Nov. 28 at the request of Presiding Judge Pat Joyce, who in October had gone to commissioners with concerns about the condition of the building.
