WESTWEGO, La. (AP) - Westwego is moving ahead on two major municipal building projects, with the long-delayed construction of its City Hall building and the design of a new fire and Emergency Management Services station getting underway.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1xG2zKo ) the city council approved new plans for the City Hall building at a special meeting Wednesday after the recently revised plans got a third-party review.

The review was ordered in September at the request of Councilman Glenn Green, who was concerned that the downscaling of the building could make it susceptible to cost overruns.

Mayor John Shaddinger says the city has $3.2 million for the building, and he is confident the city can open the second round of bids by the end of the year. Construction is expected to take 15 months.
