ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The Caledonia County courthouse's crumbling foundation will require a $1 million repair job.

Bob Rea - Vermont's East Region Director of Facilities for the Department of Buildings and General Services - tells The Caledonian Record that the foundation is "beginning to fail."

Rea says replacing the foundation would take between four and six months at least.

Tentatively, the project to renovate the foundation would begin in May 2015, but Rea says the condition could worsen suddenly before then.

State Sen. Joe Benning, a Republican from Lyndon, says the Department of Buildings and General Services tells him it's safe now, but "if that changes they'll find the money and do it."
