SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors has taken quick action to repair crumbling columns at the county courthouse.

The Sioux City Journal reports that the board approved an emergency resolution Tuesday that lets the county skip the process of formal bids. The estimated repair cost: $50,000.

It’s at least the third time in 18 months that emergency repairs have been ordered for the aging structure. Next year will be the building’s 100th year of public service.
