GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Pitt County commissioners received an update on ongoing ventilation issues at the Pitt County Courthouse.
County Engineer Tim Corley announced the county will re-treat sewage differently from before and improve the sanitary system in an attempt to alleviate concerns over lingering odors.
Pitt County has already spent around $40,000 on repairs to the courthouse in the last 18 months.
County Manager, Scott Elliott, told WNCT they now need to address odor issues in the courthouse. He said in the past the building’s pumps were replaced.
“Its not causing the functions and operations of the courthouse to not work, but they are just an inconvenience to those that do have to work there or citizens who are in the courthouse. So we will let the board know our next plan of attack to address the issue and hopefully we can close this chapter on the courthouse,” Elliott said.
