Work On Courthouse To Start In Two Weeks
TERA Approves Project to complete Structure's Remodeling
To Spend about $5,000
Administrator Cecil Rowe, of the Overton County TERA,
has announced that the Livingston Courthouse will be completed as
planned when work was started by the CWA last winter. Work of completing
the remodeling will begin in about two weeks, he said, and will
require about six weeks for completion. M.H. Hankins will have charge
of construction. The Courthouse, to be one of the most beautiful
in the Upper Cumberland when completed, is being completely overhauled
and remodeled inside, and vaults are being installed in every office
for the safety of county records. A larger and better arranged courtroom
will be one of the features of the new courthouse. The remodeling
will be completed at a cost of about five or six thousand dollars,
Mr. Rowe said. The TERA has also approved a project at Hilham school
