Noseprint Count Down
In last week’s article, we reported that a number of projects were nearing completion and could be seen through the new front windows of the Library/City Admin building. Project Manager Dave estimated that the number of residents peeking thru the windows seemed to have been down. And, being colder this week may reduce it further. Progress continues and everything remains on schedule.
Most noticeable, of course, is the paving for parking on the south side of the building. It’s striped and sure makes the facility look complete, from the outside. Utilities have been connected and the furnace started, and the air conditioners have been set on their new platform in the back. Lights are on!
Inside glass (for offices and North exit door) are due in this week. The sprinkler system and ceiling heat ducts have been installed. Once floor covering installation has been completed, bathroom fixtures will be installed, computer tables and counter tops will be set and furniture should be arriving through December.
The rich tones set a warm, safe-feeling atmosphere. I am sure that, when completed, we (and visitors) will all be pleased with and proud of the facility. It will clearly be an attractive community asset. Be sure to visit it once the open houses and meeting facilities start being used.
