New Central Library under budget


The New Central Library's construction costs are $7 million below budget, according to a recent report to the library's Implementation Committee.

Library Project Manager Rick Johnson said the savings could be attributed to a "competitive construction climate."

The project has put out more than a dozen bids on the new library and several have come in under budget, Johnson said.

"That's good news, obviously, but since we've always been ahead of the private fund-raising campaign, we still need to look at our costs and our committed funding," he said.
