Many Lauderdale County employees who work at the Raymond Davis Annex Building wore their coats even inside Friday.

That's because there is no heat on any of the eleven floors. The county is in the process of replacing the boiler system.

For now heating is limited to some small portable units. It has been out for several weeks, but on this cold day, it's really affecting the employees.

"It's about as cold as it is outside," said employee Wanda Bouldin.

"It's a big job, so to be frank with you, it cost us about $200,000 we don't have, so that is a minus right there," said county supervisor Hank Florey.

Florey says the work should be complete sometime around the first of the year.
