Construction has started on the building–sort of that is. Topsoil has been moved aside and fill dirt is being added to the building pad area. Each layer of fill dirt must be compacted so we will have a firm base for the concrete floor.
The detention pond has been roughed in with the intake and outlets put in place. An underground drain from the parking lot to the detention pond is complete.
The water meter and a new utility pole have been installed.
Problems with the sewer line crossing under the city water line have been ironed out.
The rainy weather is playing havoc with the building schedule. Wet dirt doesn’t compact properly. Depending on how much rain falls, each time it rains causes a couple or more days of delays.
Coming up on Saturday, June 23, the senior center will host the second annual fish fry and bake sale at the the pavilion north of Wommack Mill. Next year, we can use the new building for this purpose. Then we won’t be at the mercy of the weather. Click on image below to see an enlarged picture of the event flyer.
