Dave Detwiler gave an update on the construction budget detailing the aspects of the

construction that are coming in over or under the estimates and listing the contingencies

remaining in the budget. One unexpected expense is a bid that is more than double the

anticipated pricing for reworking the library sidewalk along Mill Street. The County has

requested additional bids for the work.

managing the new public resources including the Community Meeting Room. A committee of

Board members consisting of Judy Wrigley, Barbara Smith and Judi Harris was appointed to

work with staff on these policies. The Board of County Commissioners has requested to use the

Community Meeting Room for their work sessions on Tuesdays and regular meetings every

other Wednesday during construction on the county building.
