New Office Building Construction in Full Swing

The construction of the new District Office is moving forward following the issuance of a building permit.  The foundation has been completed and the wall framing is scheduled to start on February 8, 2017.

The builder, Copestone General Contractors, was awarded the contract to construct the building at a cost of $1,028,563.  The Board began setting aside funds for the building in January 2013.  The construction costs are being financed with a combination of funds in the District Capital Project Fund and an $809,000 lease purchase financing with Farmers State Bank.

The building completion is now scheduled for the first week of May 2017.  You can follow the construction progress on the District’s Facebook page.
