COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Work seems to be progressing smoothly on Columbus city hall’s renovations.

The Commercial Dispatch (https://bit.ly/20Lf2YT ) reports that city officials allowed media to tour the building Wednesday and view the progress that has been made since work began in the fall on the building, which was built about a century ago and was last renovated in the 1980s.

Project Manager Jabari Edwards Jr. says the project’s first phase - including work on the windows and doors, demolition of the building’s interior - is proceeding as planned.

The $1.5 million interior and exterior renovation is being paid for by a Community Heritage Preservation grant through the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

Officials say the city has until the end of 2016 to complete exterior renovations and until 2018 to complete the interior.
