LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- Lamar County Commissioners are hoping a gamble pays off to fix the leaks at the courthouse.
After much discussion Monday morning, commissioners approved to pay an architect company $12,500, to assess the courthouse leak problems, list needs for repairs, and put in a grant application to the Texas Historic Commission. The 50-50 grant is used to repair Texas courthouses in urgent or critical need.
County Judge Chuck Superville says the risk is worth it even if the county does not receive the grant. He says they will know where the leak is coming from and they can finally fix the leak that has been plaguing the county for years.
The grant application is due February 13th.
