ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

You will soon see changes made to the Jones County First District Courthouse in Ellisville.

"The first thing is to keep the moisture from getting into the courthouse," said Jones County Board of Supervisors Chief of Communications, Chataura Sanders. "So, we will start at the top with the roof, then the windows and hopefully there will  be some more things to help renovate." 

More than $150,000 is going into the Jones County First District Courthouse in Ellisville, and you will see the renovations starting soon.

"Chaz and Clark Engineers met with the committee and gave them an update," Sanders said.  "As soon as they are done with the final specifications and plans they will be submitted to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and then they will give us a permit, and then we can start bidding for the roofing project."

Sanders said the grant was given by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
The restoration committee met this week with engineers and said it will be before the end of the year when the roofing project starts. 

"It will be about two weeks for Chaz and Clark engineers to do the final specs and the final plans then submit those to MS Dept. of Archives and History," Sanders said.  "As soon as they approve them we will be able to get the permit and start the bidding process."

There will be different phases to the restoration project. Sanders said once the roof is complete they will look into what other problems need to be addressed.
