An expansion project is underway at the Carthage city hall.
A construction crew is remodeling space on the second floor of the building. The goal is to create a new council conference chamber, extra offices, and an I.T. Department. The construction checklist is split between an outside contractor and city staff.
Carthage City Administrator Tom Short said, “Our public works people are also offsetting some of the work by doing some of the painting, pulling some of the wires for the telecommunications for the computer system.”
The area had been used for storage space for more than 20 years. The project is expected to wrap up within the next three months.
