In a few months, people will be able to go through the front door of the Huerfano County Courthouse again. A side entrance has been used the past few years to meet American Disability Association standards for the handicapped. However, security would better be served by having people go through the front entrance but making it accessible to the handicapped was a problem. Petroglyph Inc. donated $8,000 on Wednesday to help pay for a chair lift to meet ADA standards. Tom Melland and Paul Powell of Petroglyph made the check presentation. Initially, the $8,000 would have paid for the entire chair lift but County Administrator, John Galusha, said the price for the project in just one year has gone up to $20,000. Funds from the Prison Authority Board will make up the difference. Plans are to have the chair lift in place within the next two or three months.
