Good weather jump starts multi-million dollar Lower Burrell City Hall project

Mary Ann Thomas

The sunny skies on Thursday brought out the bulldozers and more to Lower Burrell’s city hall where contractors started work on a new public works building.

The work is part of a $3.1 million project including the expansion of the police department, moving the tax office back to city hall and updating the city’s administrative offices.

Originally, the work was to start next week. But the stretch of good weather Wednesday and Thursday was good reason to start early, according to Mike Nedley, Lower Burrell’s code enforcement officer and project coordinator.

The bulldozers arrived on Wednesday and the first phase of the project was underway Thursday: Grading and installing drainage for an about 6,000-square-foot public works pole building on the former basketball/ice skating rink across from city hall.

Depending on the weather, construction of the public works building will continue into late September, according to Nedley.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
