The Goldsboro City Council will consider a $118,390 contract for reconstruction work at the former W.A. Foster Center during its meeting tonight.
The reconstruction of rooms inside the Leslie Street building is part of a larger effort to restore the 1938 building for future community use. In September, the council approved spending up to $200,000 to restore the building, which includes replacing part of the roof, repairing the gymnasium and game room, installing a new heating and air conditioning system and asbestos removal.
Work started on the building in October, following a city contract for asbestos removal.
The reconstruction project is budgeted for $88,775, which will require council approval to use $29,615 in fund balance reserves. Billy Brock Construction is recommended by staff for the work.
The contract will be reviewed during the council's regular 7 p.m. meeting in City Hall, 214 N. Center St.
