“We’re still finishing up some dirt work which will last approximately another ten days,” said Holland,” Then we’ll start looking at putting the footings in and getting the prep work done to put the steel into place next month.  The timeline for completion next year in November or December hasn’t changed.  That’s still what we’re shooting towards.”

Local contractors were invited to bid on various aspects of the project.  A portion of those bids were closed on Thursday.

According to Holland, residents will be able to watch  progress of the construction on the city’s website at http://www.chillicothecity.org/.
