Done! Gasconade County Courthouse roof awaits its first test

Posted on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 11:04 am

Workers put the final touches on one of the small domes on the Gasconade County Courthouse roof.

The only thing left is for a really good, hard rain to fall on Hermann.

To be more specific, to fall on the Gasconade County Courthouse. Only then will county administrators be assured that the roof renovation is successful. County officials Thursday morning  held their last meeting with roofing contractors, who were loading up their equipment and heading back to Kansas.

“We’re very pleased with the outcome,” said Presiding Commissioner Larry Miskel during the weekly session of the County Commission.

Said Joe Brazil of St. Charles County, a representative of TREMCO, the metal-roof supplier, “In conclusion, I think it all went well. There was some drama, but it all went well.”
