Several New / Revised Buildings
Making Steady Progress /
Other Not Yet Started

This "tall" worker seals the sheetrock seams in the interior of the restored City Hall building. (Another photo below)
Construction has not yet begun on the new Colinsville Animal Shelter despite high hope of the Friends of the Collinsville Animal Shelter (FOCAS). They are just some paper work and about $12,000 away from that start on city poperty at 156th and 129th. (Previous Coverage)

Focas officers met with City Manager Pam Polk Wednesday Aug. 17th to let her know where the animal shelter project stood. Their application as 501-3c charitable organization is still pending which is delaying grant applications. The group presented Pam with a FOCAS t-shirt. These t-shirts will be on sale during Founder's Day and other events. Anyone wanting to volunteer or donate to the effort should contact Marlene Spicer (Focas President). The volunteer group formed about a year ago.
Work on the new Middle School will continue as classes begin tomorrow. The curbing work on parking and bus lanes on Center St. (still just graveled) was delayed a bit with the recent rain. The interior of the building will be in use for students tomorrow. (Previous Coverage)
The Broadway bridge construction should start sometime this fall. (Previous Coverage)
Daily change is not as obvious at the Community Church rebuild project as efforts continue on the roof and inside walls. (Previous Coverage)
With the new City Hall windows not due to arrive for at least another month, the window openings have been partially sealed to keep the new interior sheetrock dry. (Previous Coverage)

Not sure how close the Chamber of Commerce is to moving to their new office at the "Corner Bank" at 11th & Main, but notice some cleanup and painting this week? -- Ted
