PORT ANGELES — To the applause of more than a dozen Carnegie Library supporters, the City Council on Tuesday night awarded the $1,106,000 contract to revitalize the historical structure.
“Let’s get it cleaned up,” said Mayor Glenn Wiggins.
“It’s been an eyesore for years. Let’s get it done,”
The city is planning to repair the 83-year-old Carnegie building — which served as the city library until 1998 — as a cooperative museum project with the Clallam County Historical Society and other agencies.
The contract awarded during Tuesday’s special meeting includes a $957,346 base amount with seven options totaling $148,607, which will be awarded as funding allows.
