Montco Official: Buildings Need Expensive Repairs
Montgomery County Commissioners Chairman Josh Shapiro says some county buildings in Norristown need major repair work, and two parking garages alone will cost a lot of money.
“The garage underneath the courthouse is going to need some dramatic repairs and the garage across the street from the courthouse, most commonly known as the one where the jurors park, is going to need some significant repairs as well, and the total bill based on some initial estimates is about $50 million.”
He says the One Montgomery Plaza office building across Swede Street from the courthouse has been undergoing repairs for months, and it still needs a new façade, and a few county-owned roads and bridges also need work.
