  • Muni Complex Construction on Track

    Construction on the Municipal Complex is on schedule and going well, according to Capital Projects and Facilities Director Anne Laurent. For residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, progress cannot come too soon.

    Last month, resident Helen Deaven approached council with concerns that vibrations from the soil compaction could be damaging area homes. Deaven had not consulted with county staff before approaching council. Council Chair Sharon Stover directed staff to work with Deaven to mitigate the problem.

    Since then, the design/building contractor, Jaynes Corporation, has changed the setting on its soil compression equipment from high to low and installed vibration monitors on surrounding streets to ensure that vibrations are kept below industry standards.
