Courthouse Dome will be repainted
ALBION – The dome on the Orleans County Courthouse will soon be repainted and coated with a rubberized material to prevent leaks in one of the county’s most iconic structures.
The County Legislature today approved a bid for $108,916 from a Cleveland company for the job. Garland/DBS Inc. will be the contractor.
County officials set aside $140,000 in the 2019 budget for the project.
The dome has several leaks. Inside the dome are about a dozen buckets to collect the dripping water after it rains.
The courthouse, which was built in 1858, is the focal point of the Courthouse Square, a district on the National Register of Historic Places.
