Bids in for Canonsburg Borough building renovations
Renovations to make the Canonsburg Borough Building handicapped accessible and give the police department additional space are expected to begin in February.
Borough council opened 27 bids for the estimated $1.2 million project at its Monday meeting.
Borough Manager Terry Hazlett has been tabulating the bids because a number of them were submitted with alterations and additions. Council had tabled the bids for review, but Hazlett said the members are hoping to award contracts at their next meeting.
Plans are to move the police department to the first floor, where the library had been located, and the municipal office to the second floor. Doing so, explained Hazlett, allows people coming to the municipal office to use the elevator rather than the stairs.
They also want to make the restrooms ADA compliant.
If any funds remain, there also are plans to make some cosmetic changes to council chambers.
The borough has received a $650,000 matching state grant for the work.
