After a year and a half of work, the Webster County Courthouse is no longer enclosed in scaffolding. A project to restore the building’s roof and iconic clock tower began in March 2020. The project is now ‘’99.9 percent’’ complete, Webster County Supervisor Nick Carlson said Tuesday. He said a rededication ceremony will be held this fall at a date yet to be determined. Neumann Brothers Inc., of Des Moines, had a $6,160,000 contract for the job.
