During a tour of the Brookings County Courthouse renovations Tuesday, retiring Deputy State’s Attorney Mark Kratochvil, left, and new Deputy State’s Attorney Abigail Howard chat with retired Third Circuit Judge David Geinapp inside a first-floor hallway.
Waltz Construction of Brookings, contractor for the renovation, hopes to be finished with the first floor by the end of the week. Court system employees will then move downstairs while Waltz completes its work on the second floor.
The project has a scheduled substantial completion date of April 12, 2013. The county is paying Waltz $987,000 to complete the remodeling project, which includes replacing courthouse windows.
