Massac County commissioners spent a portion of its Tuesday morning meeting the large courtroom with Massac County Supervisor of Maintenance Marsha McCutcheon, Sheriff Ted Holder and Jail Administrator John Konneman, surveying the current water damage.

McCutcheon said all the windows have problems and now the water leaks appear to be moving toward the center of the large courtroom.

While touring the large courtroom, the judge’s chambers and the jury room, Massac County Judge Joe Jackson arrived and said, “this is a disaster,” pointing out to the commissioners he and the board had discussed the issue two years ago.

“We’re still looking for the money,” said Commissioner Jayson Farmer.

Farmer told Commission Chair Jeff Weber and Commissioner Jerel Childers that Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions representatives will be back in Massac County later in the month. He suggested the board contact Honeywell to inform them the county would like to have quotes from local contractors for the repair on the courthouse roof.

Following the visit to the courtroom, the board heard first from Massac County Treasurer Dana Angelly, who reported the county general fund is $195,426.
