Andrews council learns of another library setback

The Andrews Town Council learned during its Monday, Jan. 28, meeting that the expansion project at the Andrews-Dallas Township Public Library had suffered another setback.

The new setback pertains to documents that were not submitted to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for review, Library Director Nancy Disbro informed the council.

The USDA has dictated that the library submit those documents. After that, the library will once again seek bids for the expansion project.

Disbro says she is hopeful that seeking bids for a second time will yield lower estimates.

The first setback the library suffered, earlier this month, pertained to a budgetary shortfall when bids came in much higher than expected.

In other business, the council called for a special meeting on Monday, Feb. 4, at 3 p.m., to give the 2013 salary ordinance a second reading.
