bq.Plans to expand and renovate the 12-year-old Avon Park Public Library will be proceeding, despite receiving a bid that exceeded the original $835,535 budget by $310,000. – “Bob Balgemann(County Bites Bullet On Library Overrun)”:http://www.highlandstoday.com/MGBE5P6O49E.html It isn’t very often I get to comment on a local news story (I don’t work there, but I live five minutes away). This one is satisfying because things looked so dark just a couple of weeks ago. This project will cap six years of major expansion projects throughout our country. So we should be all set…for a little while.
