County courthouses in West Virginia could be crumbling.
The West Virginia Courthouse Facilities Improvements Authority says all 55 county courthouses need work, but the money need just isn't there.
The agency receives about $2 million every year from various courthouse fees, such as marriage licenses.
The authority says it could stretch those dollars if it could issue bonds.
A plan presented to a legislative interim committee would allow the authority to invest half of its annual income in bonds. That plan is under consideration.
