  • More Damage, More Costs For Library Restoration

    The news keeps getting worse for the Glenwood Public Library.

    Last month, workers carrying out brick restoration work at the library uncovered additional masonry damage that could add more than $60,000 of additional repair work. Workers uncovered the  damage as they removed bricks from the facade of the century-old building. City administrator Brian Kissel said the additional work brings the estimated cost of the entire project to around $160,000.
