ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Work will begin later this year to renovate and remove mold for the federal courthouse in Aberdeen.

Court Architect Pam Leonard tells WTVA that bids have been approved and contracts are being finalized for the work.

The Government Service Agency (GSA) is working with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to pay for the project.

Under a utility energy service contract, TVA will put up the money for work targeting lower energy costs to operate the courthouse.

The work includes replacing the heating and air conditioning system, windows and light fixtures.

Leonard says some of the items targeted for replacement are the things responsible for the mold inside the building.

Other items that will be replaced include items where mold could remain unless removed.

The cost of the project is expected to be between $12 million and $15 million.

The GSA would repay TVA.

Work is expected to begin late spring to early summer and should be completed in 12 to 18 months.
