Ceremony set for city hall project

BERKELEY LAKE - The groundbreaking ceremony for Berkeley Lake's new city hall building is scheduled for 11 a.m. today.

Barbara Carroll, chair of the Architectural Design Committee, said Thursday that June 8 is the target date for completion of the new building and city park.

Demolition of the old city hall building should begin in about a week and a half, following removal of tiles that contain minimal amounts of asbestos. City council members on Thursday approved an expense of about $3,000 for asbestos testing, tile removal and subsequent air testing for asbestos particles.

Residents who plan to run for election to any of these three seats must pay a $27 qualifying fee and file their intent to seek election at city hall between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m Aug. 31 to Sept. 3.
