Courthouse work progressing

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

Work on the Platte County Courthouse continues to restore the look of the historic building in downtown Platte City.

In late 2008, work began on the courthouse to repair the brick and replace the windows.

The work on the courthouse includes fixing damage and wear on the bricks, as well as repairing concrete on the courthouse building.

Commercial Waterproofing out of Parkville is doing the work on the courthouse when weather conditions allow. The work is expected to continue for several months.

Commercial Waterproofing is the same company that performed brickwork on The Landmark Newspaper building in downtown Platte City last summer/fall.

More than 80 windows on the county courthouse are being replaced under a contract with Mill Valley Construction.

The new windows will look exactly like the current windows in order to maintain the historic look of the courthouse.

The old windows on the courthouse were leaky and let water inside the courthouse, causing a mold issue.

Crews began installing the windows in January on the courthouse and will continue installing the windows, weather permitting.
