LaPorte County Courthouse loses heat
LAPORTE COUNTY —
The cold weather is bad news for the County Courthouse in LaPorte.
The building's heating system has gone out leaving chilly temperatures inside.
The system was just installed during a $7-million renovation project in 2015.
The Commission President says the new heating system was not designed for the cold weather conditions and once the wind chills reached 14 below zero, the system failed.
Officials say repairs are scheduled Wednesday.
The courthouse could be closed until Friday to allow for repairs.
