County Board Takes Various Actions

Building–related issues were addressed by the Bond County Board this week.

Denver Brewer from Mason’s Masonry of Brownstown attended the meeting. The firm had previously submitted a bid of $3,944 to repair the front courthouse steps.

The board decided work should also be done to the south courthouse steps. Brewer said the cost for the south steps would be the same price or less. He said the work will be completed by the Bond County Bicentennial celebration in early July.
The Bond County Building Commission will be asked to consider allotting funds for the step projects.

Board Chairman Howard Elmore reported roof leaks on the courthouse annex building are believed to have been fixed. There is damage, however, to some ceiling tiles and insulation.

Board members passed a motion to ask Sheriff Jeff Brown, legal guardian of county buildings, to look into the replacement of tiles and insulation.

In other action, the board reappointed Gary Redfern to a three-year term on the Mulberry Grove Sanitation Board.
It was announced that a term on the Bond County Housing Authority Board will expire this month. The term is held by Adam Evans, who has requested reappointment. The board plans to make an appointment at its June 20 meeting.
