HEATING GENERAL PLAN IS TO BE FOLLOWED IN REPAIR WORK New Roof Will Not Interfere With Program Fittings Being Investigated Investigation of the footings of the Cerro Gordo courthouse is now being carried on under the direction of Ben Henry local architest Mr Henry stated that a partly completed survey of the situation revealed the indication that the foundation structure of the build ing was in good condition and that in a general program of renovation no change need be made on this part of the edifice A section of the floor was taken out in the basement assembly room of the building next to the interior wall that carries the tower struc ture There workmen dug into the ground to learn that the wall was supported by rock columns under neath An inspection of other sec tions of the wall also will be made To Build New Roof It is the plan of the board of su pervisors to proceed as soon as pos ible with the construction of a new roof on the building as recom mended by Lloyd A Canfield con struction engineer at Des Moines who stated in his report the present roof was unsafe It is the view of the supervisors that the rebuilding of the roof will not in any way interfere with auy remodeling program that might be adopted later in rearranging the in terior to provide more room for the county offices At present only the county treasurers office is in any state of congestion This remodeling program will the supervisors state probably consist of squaring up the walls to elimi nate the octogonal shape of the cen tral halls and thus reducing the size of these halls to increase the down tairs offices and provide more room for the courts on the second floor County Agent Stoves In this remodeling program when it is ultimately completed it is liice ly that the entire second floor will be given over to the courts The county agents office by that time will be situated in the proposed fed eral building and the office of Mrs R Q Moore county nurse will be put elsewhere in the building The larger courtroom will prob ably be reduced in size by provid ing additional consultation cham bers and judges rooms to the south while the other courtroom will be enlarged to provide a more conven ient arrangement for carrying on court proceedings More jury rooms also would be added These remodeling changes how ever are probably years in the it ture the supervisors admit But it is a general plan that will be fol lowed in any repairs that are made on the structure In this program the erection of a new roof will be a part The supervisors have discussed among themselves the possibility of adding to the structure to the north But in this case too they state tha proposed new roof would ba almost entirely untouched The adding of more room by building however is remotely in the future they state Even a general remodeling program would require the vote of the people for e bond issue and if tha supervi sors have the public mind sized up right the county is not n a mood for a bond issue at the present Before the engineers report showed the critical condition of the courthouse roof it was the plan of the county fathers to erect a small addition for vault rooms on the west side of the building at a cost of about The condition of the roof however made it nec essary to expend the surplus funds I for the latter purpose Whether or not the proposed vaults will be in cluded in the general renovation program of the courthouse has Act been decided It was the supervisors original view that the condition of the pre sent vaults being such as to pace all the records of the county in jeo pardy in event of fire some action should be taken as soon as possible to protect thebooks 1 FIRESIDE IVVEATHER HEPORT j I Fair Friday night probably unsettled Saturday or JSaturday
