Ind. Courts - Exterior repairs to Tippecanoe County Courthouse planned
Hannah Smith Kiefer reports in the Lafayette Journal&Courier:
Workers soon will study the Tippecanoe County Courthouse to see the extent of exterior damages.
The Tippecanoe County Commissioners on Monday approved a $25,000 feasibility study regarding the repairs. The contract was awarded to Arsee Engineers Inc., which Commissioner David Byers said has a history of working on older courthouses. The study will look at the large cupola and four smaller cupolas, the flat roof and the fountain, among other things. Byers said the fountain has a leak that can lose 20,000 to 30,000 gallons of water per year.
The study will begin in the next week or two, Byers said, and it will hopefully conclude by September. That way officials can build repair costs into next year’s budget. Work may begin this year, depending on funds. Byers said the repairs will likely take a year or more.
