Highland County Commissioner Terry Britton said Wednesday the county is currently assessing the cost of replacing the Highland County Courthouse roof.

Britton said the shingle roof is about 40 years old, and it’s showing signs of wear and tear. Britton said he was told the roofing was put on when the courthouse was remodeled in the late 1970s.

“It’s going to need some tender loving care very soon,” he said. “It’s worn… Sooner or later, it’s going to have to be done.”

Britton said at this point, the county is collecting information on how much the project will cost.

The commissioners met later than usual after attending the Clermont Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Forecast Breakfast. Board of commissioners president Shane Wilkin said Brian Beaulieu, executive director of the Institute for Trend Research, gave a presentation detailing his economic forecast for the state.

Commissioners also passed several routine financial resolutions.
