YORK – The York County Commissioners have approved a project that will restore retaining wall areas at both west-side entrances to the courthouse.
During their meeting this past week, they met with Cal Friesen, the maintenance director for the courthouse.
He said he took informal bids from two companies for tuck-pointing – he said the bid from Karr Tuckpointing (an Iowa company that does work throughout the Midwest) was “much more thorough” and this company did work on the courthouse itself a few years ago.
He said the $14,182 cost would include the replacement of some damaged bricks as well.
The other bid came in at $8,200 – but he and the commissioners noted the second company didn’t include all the work that would be necessary.
The commissioners agreed that the money should come out of the county’s capital improvement fund, which currently has a balance of $164,000.
The bid from Karr was approved and the work will take place in the near future.
