Residents can expect to see a new town hall, new sidewalks and parking options, a new dog park and other park improvements by the end of the year if the latest update on Garner’s 2013 bond program holds true.
Those projects account for most of the things voters indicated they wanted when they passed a $35.7 million bond referendum several years ago.
Michael Gammon, the town’s budget and special projects manager, told the town council recently that Garner had applied about $1.8 million toward bond projects since February. The town spent nearly all of that on construction projects, with the town hall project getting most of the dollars.
Assistant town engineer Jonathan Ham said carpet installation is nearing completion at the new town hall.
“Wall paint is going in as well; doors and door hardware,” Ham said. “The progress will move from the second floor to the first floor in the next few weeks.”
The estimated date of completion on the town hall project is June 18, Ham said.
Eleven bond projects valued at $6.8 million are already complete. The town spent $1,976,300 on eight of those, coming in $247,864 under budget.
