Public Safety Bids, Strategic Planning Among City Council Topics

galesburgRenovations to Galesburg’s Public Safety Building will be a topic of discussion at tonight’s city council meeting.

Alderman will meet to discuss what costs should be covered in regard to fixing the roof of the building.

CAD Construction Inc. has entered a low bid of $83,000 for the repairs, which will include replacing old shingles with a new metal roof to match the roof over the council chambers.

Council is expected to take a vote on removing asbestos from the building. KAM Services Inc. came in as the low bidder at just over $12,000. The removal will be the second of three phases of construction expected to be done on the building.

New double-paned windows and an upgraded locker room area will be included as well.

Alderman are also expected to decide whether or not to adopt a community planning program this evening. The plan would enact the “Community Heart and Soul Initiative” through the Orton Family Foundation.

According to council documents, the city would provide a partial match of up to $50,000 alongside the Galesburg Community Foundation.

Council meets tonight at 6:30 p.m. in City Hall.
