David Rainey and John Bryant with Veridus Group provided an update on the Municipal Complex Project for the new Street and Fire Departments’ campus. They are expecting a 100% construction document from DLZ on March 9. They are expecting mobilization in April and site work to begin in May with a substantial completion date of March 2024.
