The Kalona City Council toured the community center to see the construction progress Monday.

City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh says Project Manager Nick Liston and Project Engineer Tad Morrow from Carl A. Nelson & Co. gave an update on the construction and budget, “We went through and did a physical tour of the building with the council afterwards. We spent probably a half hour to 45 minutes to really kind of go through each room with the goal that the council has a real clear picture and understanding of what the building will look like once it’s completed, so that there’s no confusion or misconception on how the space is going to be programmed or fixtures and carpeting and all good stuff like that.”

The council approved a change order increase of $19,635.72 to Ace Electric and a change order increase of $8,824.63 to Bushong Construction. The council also discussed a contract with YMCA of Washington County for the center, which is expected to be acted upon at the next meeting.
