Work on new Lachute library progressing

The next step in the process of making a home for Lachute’s public library is going ahead.

On May 21, city council approved a $100,000 contract for the supervision of mechanical and electrical engineering work that is being done on the former Lachute United Church building to convert it into to the library.

Mayor Carl Péloquin said approving the contract for the engineering supervision is one of the regular things council had to do in order to continue the library project.

The new library in the former church will be completed in 2020.
