COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - The Columbus City Council has approved the remaining contracts for renovation of the Trotter Convention Center.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1rYIdGd ) with all the contracts now in place, the project is costing $2.20 million.

In September, the council authorized borrowing an amount not to exceed $2.5 million from the Mississippi Development Bank and using in-lieu fees from Columbus Light and Water to service the debt at approximately $225,000 a year with a 4.55 percent interest rate until it is paid off.

The final work involved contracts for installation of flooring, ceiling tile, the canopy, a new sound system and a front wall and lighting improvements.

Installation of a new roof and air conditioning unit are in progress.

Officials expect renovations to be finished in November.
