County workers have spent the last couple of days tearing up the large flag-stones that make up the walk- way to to the main entrance of the Courthouse.
A new concrete walk-way should be in place by this coming weekend.
County leaders say the repair job was required because over the past few years there have had a number of complaints about people tripping on the flagstones. County officials say the flagstones were also a problem to maintain because they presented an uneven surface. In the winter county workers reported the walkway was difficult to shovel. It was determined that the best course of action was to replace the flagstones in the walkway concrete. Because the repair work is being done with county workers providing the labor, the Blair Commissioners said the project should be completed at little expense to the County.
