According to Thomas Construction Group, almost all asbestos has already been removed. Work will soon begin on interior framing and laying a foundation for an elevator.

The project is currently under the $4.5 million budget and is scheduled to be completed by January 19.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, they are considering installing touchless faucets and toilets for an additional cost of nearly $15,000.

That must first be approved by commissioners.
