Renovations at Tell City courthouse underway soon

PERRY CO., IN (WFIE) - Renovations to the Tell City Courthouse will soon get underway.

The Perry county courthouse really isn't that old, but county council members say renovations are needed to meet current ADA standards.

They say construction on those renovations is set to get underway next month.

Council President Tom Hauser says the renovations will include new paint, new lighting, modified ceilings, and new floors. He also says the building's restrooms will be modified to meet ADA specifications.

The courthouse is 20 years old, and Hauser says the council has been looking to make these upgrades for over a year.

"We're starting construction in January. Right now, the dates are being finalized. So, there will be some disruptions, but we plan on keeping the courthouse fully functional throughout the period," Hauser said.

He says construction on these renovations should be complete by the middle part of next summer.
