New windows for White Rock City Hall

The City of White Rock will spend more than half a million dollars to replace windows in its city hall and library

The City of White Rock will spend more than half a million dollars to replace windows in its city hall and library.

Council voted unanimously last week in support of the work, which is a component of renovations and upgrades that got underway earlier this year.

“We’ve been waiting a while for those,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said, following the council vote.

Windows were replaced in council chambers last February; tenders for the remaining windows closed Aug. 13.

In a Sept. 8 report to council, director of engineering and municipal operations Greg St. Louis recommends the work be awarded in two contracts totalling $528,000 ($654,100, including tax and contingency), with both going to Dubas Management & Construction.

The replacements are already included in the city’s financial plan, St. Louis notes.

They – along with a new roof on city hall expected complete by the end of the month – are to increase efficiency of the new heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in the two facilities.
