QUINCY, Ill. (AP) — More renovations and repairs are set at the Adams County Courthouse in western Illinois even after damage from a September storm has been fixed.
The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that the costs for cleanup after more than 6 inches of rain are being submitted to the county’s insurance provider. The storm sent water from the fourth-floor jail to the basement, filling garbage cans. The courthouse was built in 1950.
Other renovations are underway now. County officials are seeking estimates to repair a portion of the courthouse’s exterior wall that is starting to bow. Windows have been replaced, insulation is being installed and a set of double doors will be added to cut down wind entering the building.
The county also is budgeting $50,000 for new heating and air-conditioning units.
