Construction of the new courthouse elevator will begin and the noisy and disruptive construction is expected to last eight weeks. The elevator improvements will bring the county in compliance with ADA (American Disability Act) requirements. In addition to a larger car, the project will include a new hydro lift system, automatic doors and control and emergency equipment such as a telephone and lighting. The project will cost $88,000. The new elevator will no longer require the three paid county elevator operators previously utilized.

10 YEARS AGO … 2009
