Construction of the new Youngsville Borough Building is moving skyward.
Workers from G.L. Olson of Dewittville, the general contractor on the job, were sheeting the roof on Tuesday. The installation of a metal roof should start late this month.
Several points on the list of jobs yet to be done are set to begin on Dec. 1, but that is the final date on the list.
Borough Manager Terry Williams expects the structure to be ready for occupation in mid-December.
“It’s been going very, very well,” she said. “The weather has cooperated beautifully.”
The project is within its budget and on schedule, she said.
The total of the contractors’ bids is $854,030, $53,593 under the budgeted amount of $907,623.
The borough has $1 million allocated for the project. That amount will cover the construction, furnishings, and security and telephone systems.
Williams said the building would have an extensive security system, include video surveillance inside and out, because the borough police department will be located there.
She said the borough is in negotiations with companies to provide both the security systems and the furnishings.
“It’s a big project for us,” Williams said. “It took a lot of coordination and effort. We’re happy to finally be seeing the fruits of that labor.”
