The Vigo County Budget is tight just like every other budget.
Sometimes you have to spend money to keep from spending more later.
The Vigo County Commissioners asked and the County Council approved an estimated $100,000 appropriation to fix the roof of the courthouse dome.
There are some holes in the copper dome and that lets water leak through.
The leaking water can fill buckets depending on rain fall.
That water could ruin much of the work done over the past few years to renovate the building.
Hopefully the contractor can start soon before it gets too hot or the repairs will have to wait until the fall.
