(KAIR)--A plumbing-based upgrade is coming to the Jefferson County Courthouse, with Commissioners this week voting to move forward with the work.

According to the unofficial minutes of the Jefferson County Commission's January 30 meeting, a bid of $80,500 was approved unanimously by the Commission, following a presentation from the County's Public Works Director, Ben Domann.

Domann told Commissioners that bid, from Topeka-based McElroy's Plumbing, was the only one submitted, despite Domann's attempt to gain other options, with those contacted declining to do so.

The cost of the project- bill is budgeted into the federally allocated pandemic-era American Rescue Plan Act Funds, with Domann reminding the board that the funds have to be spent in a specific time-frame.

The Commission's vote of approval means a replumbing of the bathrooms on all three floors of the courthouse, as well as new plumbing in the utility chase, replacing the tile and toilets, as well as installing new partitions and new plumbing fixtures.

According to Domann at the meeting, McElroy's Plumbing “will work with the work schedules as much as possible” once the project gets underway.
