Board debates renovations


“Did they take care of all the leaks? I’m not sure,” Mulch said. “Without them doing the whole roof, I don’t know how you’re ever going to stop the leaks.”

County Board Vice Chairman Don Rector said leaks have been an issue at the courthouse at least since 1990.

“We put a new roof on, we’ve done the tuck pointing, and every time it comes a blowing rain from the west it leaks,” Rector said.

Also on Monday, the County Board approved changes to the committee chairman assignments.

John Keele, the current Fiscal Committee chairman, was reassigned to be chairman of the Technology Committee. Also, the current chairman of the Technology Committee, Robert Watt, was reassigned as chairman of the Fiscal Committee.

A specific reason for the changes was not cited at Monday’s meeting.

Other board actions Monday included:

n Discussion of pursuing a website advertising plan that could be a revenue source for the county.

n Approval of a mutual aid agreement with ILEAS.

n Approval of an updated policy against harassment and sexual misconduct.
