Kennebec County Courthouse corrects code violations

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine courthouse that had been cited for code violations is now in compliance following work to remedy them.

Kennebec County Administrator Robert Devlin says the deficiencies in the 19th-century Kennebec County Courthouse have been fixed.

Last year, the Maine Bureau of Labor Standards issued nine citations for rules violations, most of them involving the building’s electrical system. The county was given until Feb. 15 to make the improvements.

Devlin says the problems were corrected shortly after the inspector’s visit. He tells the Kennebec Journal that county officials will report back to the state within a week.
