CITY NEW BRIEFS: OCTOBER 2009

Month

City Hall Parking Lot Construction
Posted: Thursday, October 8, 2009

Hurricane Ike took its toll on all kinds of property in Shoreacres, including City Hall. Slowly we are making repairs and hope to be back good as new by the summer of 2010.

Previously we repaired the marquee. This week we replaced our radio tower and antennas. Next week we will begin the process of replacing the parking lot. Not only did flood water damage the asphalt surface, but heavy trucks and forklifts used to provide emergency supplies created hazardous potholes that desperately need repair.

Parking Lot Construction Begins Monday, October 12.

Our new parking surface will be all concrete and provide additional parking space and improved drainage. Sidewalks surrounding City Hall will also be replaced.

Despite the construction, City Hall will maintain normal business hours.

The rear and front-side parking areas will be done one at a time. This means that while somewhat limited, parking will be available at City Hall throughout construction. The public business entry will always be via the front stairs. City Council and other meetings, including Municipal Court, will use either the rear or side door depending on the area of construction work.
