Mahoning County Courthouse getting new boilers

YOUNGSTOWN

Mahoning County commissioners Thursday awarded the $215,302 county courthouse boiler-replacement contract to Antenucci Inc. of Warren, and the $24,900 fourth-floor ceiling-repair contract to Murphy Contracting of Youngstown.

Antenucci will remove the 14 boilers that were installed in 1989 and replace them with four high-efficiency boilers.

The work will be done in stages to ensure that the courthouse will have sufficient heat during the installation and removal process, said James Fortunato, county purchasing director.

Murphy will install a membrane under the boiler area and an alarm to warn of any future leaks and repair the ceiling, he said.

Because water has been leaking in recent years from the boilers in the courthouse attic, peeling ceiling paint and plaster damage is visible over the marble stairway near domestic relations court and the law library. Part of the stairway has been cordoned off because of the damage.

Fortunato said all three elevators need to be refurbished, and the county may be able to use the current cars. The mechanical systems that operate the courthouse elevators, however, must be replaced, he said. The three courthouse elevators consist of a prisoner transport elevator and two passenger elevators.

The commissioners’ next meeting will be at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Bistro Restaurant in the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center in Canfield.
