Construction Zone Update


Here is an update on our front step project:
The added work to shore the existing treads was not discovered until the cheek walls were opened up and could not be anticipated without doing that work prior to bidding.  At this point the contractor is waiting for delivery of the new stone which has to match the old stone since this is an historic building.  Soooo, we are waiting – patiently – for this project to be completed to allow everyone access to both doors of the library.
