Court House To Be Remodeled SoonThe contract was given W.P.Nugent and Son for the remodeling of the county court house Monday, when the Commissioners' Court conveniened. It is thought work will start in the next five or six days.
The improvement to the court house will consist of removing the present roof and take off a portion of the top of the walls. The east wall is to be extended out twenty feet and new walls built in making the building quite a lot larger than it is. New jury rooms will be arranged with all modern accommodations. The ceiling is to be lowered making a modern 14 foot ceiling and other modern improvements to be made. A new modern roof will replace the present one, and when the job is completed our county will have a modern court house -- almost a new one. The work will cost around $15,000 and will give our county a building that will accomodate every office in the county for twenty years at least. Our Commissioners' Court should be commended for this work because with the comparative small expenditure they have saved our county the expense of building a new court house. Everybody knows we need some thing by way of a court house.
