East Peoria OKs architectural contract for new City Hall
“This allows the architects and engineers to look at it to tell us how much we are actually going to spend. It’s been a little bit fuzzy. And frankly, I’m afraid that maybe we’ve underestimated a little bit, but I’d just like to know the facts upfront, so I’m looking forward to getting these numbers back,” Decker says.
Earlier estimates say it could cost more than $500,000 to spruce up the aging building where it stands, while building a new hall in the Levee district is about $2 million. The architectural contract is with Principle Construction Management and Design for $138,000.
