LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Albany County commissioners have signed off on a $1.6 million deal to renovate the north entrance to the courthouse.

The Laramie Boomerang reported Saturday the county engineer had to remove or delay some features in the plan to keep it within budget.

One delayed feature is a heated sidewalk outside the north entrance to keep ice from accumulating during Laramie's fierce winters. County Engineer Bill Gorman said the heating tubes will be installed in the walkways, but boilers to warm them will have to wait.

Some signage was also removed from the project.
