County Council DOES do windows.
The county's 2008-09 proposed budget has grown by roughly $100,000 to equal $30.3 million, county Finance Director Veronica Thompson told council Monday night.
That's to replace windows at the historic Lancaster County Courthouse. Due to the courthouse's National Historic Landmark status, the windows must be replaced in a specific way – to the tune of $111,000.
Many of the windows are rotting, and courthouse officials say they leak when it rains.
Council held a public hearing on the budget, but no one signed up to speak.
