TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Some LED lights are helping to illuminate the top of Tippecanoe County courthouse. 

"It's kind of nice to know that I've been apart of a big change in how the courthouse looks," said Jason Roehl. 

Roehl has been part of the project from the beginning. He helped install the lights and now he's the one controlling them.

"With the recent work on the dome and as part of that project the powers that be decided partway through to upgrade from white on part of it to colored lighting," said Roeh. 

County Commissioner Tom Murtaugh was part of that decision. He said the project cost was around $170,000.

"Previously the courthouse had been lit by lighting on the adjacent blocks and we wanted to bring all that lighting on site," said Murtaugh. 

The control panel allows the lights to change to almost any color, and so far Murtaugh says it seems like the community is loving the new look.

"Our Facebook page got tons of feedback and regarded all very positive and how they really enjoyed it and it really brought some interesting light in conversation to downtown," said Murtaugh. 

The County wants your help in deciding how the courthouse will look during the Holiday Season. Murtaugh said you can vote through the Tippecanoe County facebook page.
