Renovations continued this week with interior finish work, exterior stucco application, exterior paint preparation and entry vestibule construction. KCP&L is scheduled to install the new electrical service and should be complete next week; then the roof and guttering can be completed.

Crews have nearly completed the sign room in the renovated building; swept 61 miles of roadway this week in response to firework debris and the heavy rain of Thursday; cleaned the low flow channel of the detention basin adjacent to the YMCA; and continue to trim trees and shrubs that are blocking line-of-sight triangulations at traffic signs and intersections.
