West U Completes Last Piece of City Hall Expansion Project
The City of West U has completed the last piece of its city hall expansion project with landscaping to the entrance on Auden Street.
City Manager Michael Ross told the city council on Monday night that the landscaping project was the “last piece of the puzzle” for the expansion project.
The entrance to Auden received new lighting, irrigation and landscaping to make the municipal building feel like “one complete building,” Ross said.
The project began at the end of April with the demolition of existing landscaping and planting was completed today.
New pavers are being installed around the fire hydrant at Auden and Amherst and between the generator unit and the sidewalk on Amherst. The pavers are expected to be installed within the next two weeks.
The landscaping project cost $70,000. The final landscaping project was funded mainly through the budget for the expansion project and from the Parks and Recreation Department and the Public Works Department budgets, he said.
“It looks great,” Ross said. “I’m very proud of parks and rec. and public works for working together to make it happen.”
The two-story city hall expansion project was completed nearly a year ago and included a new police station, improvements to the fire and finance departments and a new parking lot, amongst other things.
The entire expansion project cost $5.9 million.
