Floyd County Courthouse/LEC Project Down to About $1 Million Contracted Work Remaining

Just over $1 million in originally contracted work remains for the construction of the new Floyd County Law Enforcement and renovations to the County Courthouse.

However, the project continues to see added costs brought on by unforeseen, although not totally unexpected, extra work to the courthouse built almost 82 years ago. At their regular meeting Monday, Floyd County Board of Supervisor Chair Doug Kamm gave one of the latest examples that sprung up last week.

Supervisors approved covering the cost of the rewiring by spending about $7,500 in County American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds, which Kamm noted have helped with extra costs and only extras.

Supervisor Roy Schwickerath added that the Board doesn’t take having to spend money on unplanned-for-work lightly, but they’re likely to incur more such costs because the courthouse is “an old building.”
