APPLE VALLEY – The County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday awarded a contract to Kitchell/CEM for the repairs of the Apple Valley Newton T. Bass Branch Library.
The library has been closed since April 18, 2015, when high winds caused major structural damage to the roof of the location. The repairs were projected to cost approximately $2.5 million. In March 2016, a temporary location was opened.
The residents of Apple Valley have been awaiting the reopening of the permanent location. The time that seemed like a delay to residents was filled with months of inspections and studies by engineers for the County and insurance companies to determine the extent of the problems.
The work is expected to begin in mid-April and should take approximately one year to complete. “As a parent with three children attending school in Apple Valley, I very much understand the importance of the library,” Chairman Lovingood said. “We are now on track to make repairs and reopening this important hub of activity for Apple Valley residents.”
