Supervisors contemplate courthouse window replacement

(Clarinda) -- Page County officials continue to explore replacing 40-year-old windows at the county courthouse. More discussion on the possible project took place at Tuesday morning's county board of supervisors meeting. Originally, the board discussed replacing the county recorder's office windows. However, Supervisor Jacob Holmes sought additional bids after the board received only one bid for the project. Holmes says all three bids received were similar in costs. But, after inspecting the entire courthouse, Holmes believes all of the facility's windows should be replaced. He says most of them date back to 1981.
