LDN -- Top Stories

This small piece of concrete represents a very large problem at the Logan County Courthouse. The concrete is a piece that has broken off from the exterior structure of the dome. Such a piece recently fell off and tumbled through the stained glass interior dome, crashing onto the floor three stories below.

The dome, which is original to the courthouse has experienced years of moisture, condensation, freeze and thaw, tornados and lightning strikes, and is suffering the consequences. The Logan County Board is now seeking to place a referendum on the upcoming election ballot, seeking an increase in local sales tax, specifically to be used to restore the dome and also finance work that needs to be done for the Logan County Jail.
