About a month from now South Dundas municipal staff will have access to their new home, the South Dundas municipal centre in Morrisburg.
At this point in the $4 million renovation project to convert the former Morrisburg Collegiate Institute into a new home for South Dundas administration and a new home in Morrisburg for the adjacent St. Lawrence Medical Clinic, municipal officials are well pleased.
According to South Dundas chief administrative officer Steve McDonald, the flooring is now going in on the second and third floors of the building that will be occupied by the municipality.
The millwork is starting this week, and then it’s on to final work and completion of the addition.
“From the municipal point of view, the progress on the project and the quality of the workmanship has been great,” said McDonald.
“We have had excellent cooperation from our contractor on this project.”
He added that the renovation has progressed quicker than originally anticipated.
Throughout the project they have tried to create as few issues as possible for clinic patrons accessing the adjacent site.
“We’re pleased with this project,” said McDonald.
South Dundas Mayor Steven Byvelds expects that the August regular council meeting will be the last in South Dundas council chambers in Williamsburg.
