Swanville City Hall finds a new home at Senior Center

By Liz Verley, Staff Writer 

As of Tuesday’s Swanville City Council meeting, it was expected that the new city office would be completed and moved to its new location by Monday. The new location is at the Swanville Senior Center.

The main responsibilities of the new city hall remodeling fell to Swanville Construction at a cost of $3,050. Painting of and moving to the new office will be done by volunteers.

The Swanville Library will now expand into the previous city hall facility. Work on the expansion of the library will be done by Randy Golombecki Construction at a cost of $4,000 – $6,000. The difference in the price will depend upon whether one of the walls to be moved is a weight bearing wall or not.

Construction at the library is expected to be completed by April 6. Volunteers will also do the painting at the library.
