Further engineering work approved for Lachute library

Another step in constructing Lachute’s new public library is now on the books.

At its August 5 meeting, city council approved a $54,000 contract for engineering work on the exterior of the former United Church building on Rue Principale where the library will be located.

Mayor Carl Péloquin said the work will specifically involve the parking area and stormwater control on the property.

The exterior engineering work will be done once the current work on the bricks, concrete, and windows is completed.

Once the exterior engineering is finished, the interior work will be done.  Péloquin said that will take eight to nine months to complete.

The new Lachute library is scheduled to completed by the end of 2020.
