Crews are preparing for interior work on the Kalona Community Center project.

Tad Morrow of construction manager Carl A. Nelson said at a recent city council meeting the temporary heater for the building is scheduled to arrive February 2. The heater will thaw the ground and eliminate frost before pouring concrete. After the concrete base is poured, crews will pour concrete for the track mezzanine and further interior work will begin. Morrow says the targeted center completion date is August 10, and City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh suggests a ribbon cutting ceremony be held in conjunction with the city celebration day August 25.
