While contractors are moving forward with the building of the courthouse annex in Lewis County, commissioners found out Monday that they'll actually be getting some more money to make improvements to the original courthouse.
The commission received a $38,000 Courthouse Improvement Grant from the Courthouse Facilities Improvement Authority. These funds will be used to replace the roof, gutter and downspouts on the old jail section. This money can be used starting in January.
"This is great for the taxpayers of the county for us to upgrade the assets of the county. The properties and the buildings of the county are the assets of the county and the taxpayers thereof and so this is very vital for us to have the funds coming in from the state agencies to be able to keep the buildings up and maintain those," said Commission President Pat Boyle.
Commissioners also say the new buildings and the upgrades should help make it more convenient for tax payers coming into town for services.
