(SANILAC COUNTY) -- The Sanilac County Finance and Administration Committee met Tuesday afternoon and approved a request from Sandusky Arts Council president Rick Cook to proceed with a face-lift project for the gazebo on the courthouse lawn. The project will open up the north side of the gazebo and add platforms that can be used as a stage for concerts, church services, or town meetings. The Sandusky Arts Council is hoping to raise $8500 for the face-lift through fund raising and donations, and has already contributed $1000 to begin the process. The proposal is expected to be approved when it goes before the full Board of Commissioners next week. Anyone interested in helping with the gazebo face-lift project is asked to contact Kevin Kohn at Kohn's Music Store in Sandusky, or Rick Cook at 810-837-0132. The Sanilac County Board of Commissioners meet next Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Speaker Township Hall.
