WARREN, Pa. – The Warren County Commissioners have a plan in place to renovate the exterior of the courthouse.
An agreement with Larson Karle Architechs was approved during Wednesday’s meeting, with commissioner Jeff Eggleston saying that the firm would essentially act as project manager, as well as develop requests for proposals.
“This is a historic building that has a lot of pieces that need to be maintained for aesthetics,” Eggleston said. “The renovations being discussed have mostly to do with the space below the roof line.”
The total value of the contract with Larson Kyle is $26,200.
Eggleston suggested that the total cost of renovations could exceed $250,000.
“This is the price to pay for having a historic building,” Eggleston said of the structure, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. “This isn’t like res-iding your house. The building is 150 years old”
