Nick Teague, of the BLM, has secured funding for renovations to the Patos Island Lighthouse.The project will run from approximately May 15th until July 15th, 2008. The contract has been awarded to Tom Lantos Construction and will be headed by Bill White, project manager/carpenter.
Patos Island Lighthouse will receive a good cleaning, painting inside and out, new roof, windows, and doors, upper cupola refurbished, new gutters and rain spouts, and foundation work as well as chimney work. The new windows will be protected using heavy duty, thick lexan glass. This will allow folks to look inside, increase light into the building, and also deter vandalism.
Patos Lighthouse is ready for the next 100 years. We would like to thank Tom Lantos Construction for the beautiful job. Well Done!
