WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - The community of Waterbury, Vermont, is planning to break ground on its new municipal complex next week, more than three years after Tropical Storm Irene devastated the town.

Vermont Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/1JrNkr9) the project involves adding new construction onto the building that currently houses Waterbury’s library and historical society. The new space will accommodate additional town offices and a community meeting room.

Since August 2011, many government services have made do with temporary facilities.

Barbara Farr, who is leading the recovery effort, said construction is expected to be completed by January 2016.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday on Main Street.

Work also is being done on an 86,000-square-foot state office complex to replace what was destroyed in the storm.
