Belmont County Courthouse in need of repairs

Written by 

Commissioners say preventative measures will cost around $1 million

ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio -- Officials in Belmont County say they repairs to the county courthouse are expected to cost more than $1 million.

The Belmont County Commissioners voted on Tuesday to make preventative repairs to the 100-year-old building, which will include sealing cracks and holes and bleaching the sandstone edifice. Commissioner Mark Thomas said that taking these measures now will prevent more serious - and more costly repairs - in the future.

Thomas said that the Commissioners intend to take care of the courthouse "at the lowest possible cost, without any tax payer dollars."

Thomas explained that the county's facility fund is due nearly $1 million in revenue from Ohio's casinos. The remainder will likely be drawn from oil and gas revenues coming into Belmont County.
