Courthouse to get new electrical service

One cant help but wonder if the decision of whether to remodel the present courthouse or build new on another site isnt being made by default, given the amount of money being spent on the present building.

In the last several months, the county has been making major improvements to the courthouse. Last fall, the county spent $30,000 on an asbestos abatement project in preparation for the proposed elevator project. The elevator is scheduled to be installed this coming September at an estimated cost of $78,000 (November 1999 prices).

On Tuesday, the Fillmore County Board at their regular meeting approved another $30,000 to upgrade the electrical system.

In a letter to Fillmore County Coordinator Karen Brown, Kane & Johnson Architects, who are handling the elevator project, raised the issue of whether the countys electrical service would be up to handling the demands of the proposed elevator.

Consulting engineers for the architects, Engineered Concepts, Inc. (ECI) looked at the service and found that while it would be adequate for handling the electrical load, the condition of the service is so poor that it may not be able to handle the surges that the elevator would create. This could possibly cause the electrical system to fail.

ECI estimated that it would cost approximately $30,000 to replace the service and the main switchgear. This cost assumes that the building which presently houses the switchgear would not need to be remodeled.

The county board moved quickly to approve the outlay. Commissioner Marc Prestby made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Randall Dahl, to approve the electrical upgrade so that it could be part of the bid specs that go out on the elevator project. The motion was approved.

Chatfield Shop Cleanup

Braun Intertec, consultants for the county on the Chatfield Highway Shop cleanup, were before the board to discuss the status of the current project.

Project Manager Mark Gretebeck told the board that analysis of test results from monitoring wells have showed that contaminant levels have decreased and that continued operation of the system may not be warranted. Braun Intertec has been collecting and treating contaminated ground water for the county the past four years.

In discussing options for 2001, Greteberg said that the county could wait for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to respond to Brauns upcoming r .....
