Carroll County Commissioners will have to bid repairs to the courthouse bell tower.
Commissioner Doyle Hawk said Monday he received an opinion from Prosecuting Attorney Donald Burns noting even if the repairs are considered an emergency, they must be bid because the estimated cost is in excess of the state’s requirement for bids.
Commissioners received a proposal last week from The Traditions Group in Dublin, OH, to clean out the bell tower and repair it in two phases. The first phase was to clean the pigeon droppings from the tower which was estimated to take about two weeks and to secure the tower to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. The second phase was to repair the tower and clock.
Repair of the tower has been the topic of conversation several times during the past year since needed repairs came to light.
Hawk was to meet with an engineer Monday afternoon to discuss the project.
In other business, commissioners:
