COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - The heavy lifting is about to begin on Columbus city hall’s renovation.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1iKTtqU ) a $1.5 million interior and exterior renovation is underway for the aging building which was built about a century ago and was last renovated in the 1980s. The tab is being paid by a Community Heritage Preservation grant through the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

George Irby, assistant to the director of community development, says serious work should start in the next few weeks. Light work on the exterior has already started. Irby says city hall occupants should be moving to the municipal complex toward the end of the month.

The project will include an updated handicap ramp, new doors and windows, pressure washing and underground relocation of utilities.
