Ind. Courts - Tippecanoe County Courthouse in need of repairs

Hannah Smith Kiefer's story in the Lafayette Journal & Courier reports:

Tippecanoe County Commissioner David Byers said the metal on the dome and some columns are beginning to rust and bits of concrete or metal are falling on the courthouse roof. He noticed the damage several weeks ago.

“If you look at some of those columns up there toward the top, you can see some rust on them,” he said.

Byers brought up the need for renovations at the Tippecanoe County Council meeting Tuesday morning. So far, he said, the damage does not pose any sort of safety risk and there are no actual holes in the dome or roof.
