The hazy windows of the Ziebach County Courthouse have worse problems than a seeming lack of spit and polish.

No amount of sprucing up can fix the failed insulated glass units that allow condensation to build up inside the sealed double pane windows, leaving gastly water marks and causing thermal loss.

More than just unsightliness, the windows also have failing window glazing, the trim used to hold the IG units into place and insulate.

“When there’s a cold wind, you can feel the draft,” said Ziebach County Deputy Auditor Tracie Henderson.

According to meeting minutes for January 8, 2013, the commissioners heard from Mike Hubbard of Johnson Controls Inc., regarding options for financing the window project.

Hubbard said they could do a municipal lease or a bond.

Commissioners went with the lowest interest rate option, the bond. The $500,000 will be payable over 7 years and interest will not increase more than 1% per annum.

Taxes shouldn’t change, since the project was budgeted.
