City Hall will officially close down its offices located at 13020 Newcastle Way to make the transition to its home in the Newcastle Professional Center at 12835 Newcastle Way. The closure will take place Oct. 24.

The new City Hall will open for business Oct. 25. The city’s 649-4444 phone number will remain the same.

The City Council voted in February to make the move to the second floor of the professional center. The city has been located above Newport Manufacturing for 15 years.

Express Construction Inc. was awarded the City Hall tenant improvements contract to install new walls and other framing, City Council chambers, electrical wiring, a fire suppression system, conference rooms and office space for city staff.

Express Construction is the same company that completed construction on the building in 2007.

The contract for more than $217,000 in construction costs was approved by the Newcastle City Council at its Aug. 1 meeting.

The construction phase of the project is anticipated to be complete by Oct. 7.

The total project is expected to cost the city about $250,000.

    Did this project come in on budget as promised? Here is an opportunity for the Council to demonstrate that it’s serious when it talks about fiscal restraint, making sure dollars are spent efficiently. Most of us have the impression that it’s accepted by the Council to go over budget without much thought. Maybe the Newcastle News will write a story that digs deep and finds this out for us?
