City hall construction work

Contractors made significant progress the last two weeks on the Clarkston city hall renovation and expansion project, said City Manager Jonathan Smith.
Projects completed include preparation for and installation of the concrete floors in the new City Council meeting room and the expanded garage area, installation of the new front sidewalk, installation of clapboard siding and trim on the addition as well as most of the existing building, and start of the framing of the new walls enclosing the council meeting room and storage room, Smith said.
“We had a great meeting this week with Midwest Illumination to review the new and repurposed lighting fixtures they will be donating to the city,” he said. “Next week, we expect the students from the Clarkston building trades program to be on site to build interior walls and prepare rooms for drywall.”
They also expect the electrician to be on site to begin rough wiring. So far, the city is $13,859 under budget for the completed work categories, Smith said.
