HARTINGTON — Henry Stuckenhoff has received the contract to build the new Library. He was awarded the job at the Thursday meeting of the Board.
Under the contract, the building will include everything the Board hoped they might put into it, a tile roof, stell furniture and other desirable features.
Mr. Stuckenhoff does not expect to complete the building this winter, but to go no farther than the foundation, if that far. Martin Nelson, who bought the church building, has until the first of December to remove it. After that, excavating for the foundation will take some time and by the time the foundations are completed, it will most likely be pretty cold weather to risk running the concrete floors. Freezing is practically fatal to concrete work, and so this part of the work at least will no doubt will wait until spring.
