Repairs approved for county building


CLINTON — The DeWitt County Board recently approved expenditures in relation to the county building maintenance program.

The board approved $18,500 for brick and mortar rehab work on the county building.  Committee chairman Terry Ferguson said it was part of a long-range plan initiated about a year ago.

“We’ve got some areas where the mortar used to be that needs touched up,” Ferguson said.  “This will be the beginning of putting together the bid packet and advertising for the project.”

Board members also approved up to $14,035 to replace carpet in the circuit clerk’s, state’s attorney’s and zoning offices. 

“This will just cover the cost of removing the old carpet, and scraping up the glue,” Ferguson said. 

He said the county already had the new carpet for installation.
