City Commission Meeting
July 11, 2012
Emergency Session Wed. 4pm
The City Commission approved a $47,576 emergency contract to stabilize the building by shoring the walls and removing the remaining roof (which is now stressing the north and south walls). The work could begin as soon as Friday if RECO Enterprises can round up their crew and necessary equipment. The commission will likely decide Monday (at the regularly scheduled meeting) on awarding additional contract work for putting a new roof on the historic structure. -- Ted Wright -- 7/11/2012 -- 9:20pm
