Detail Work in Commission Building

This building is located on the north west corner of Maumee and Broad Street. It is often called the "Old Post Office" as it was originally built in 1906 by the U.S. Department of Treasury as a post office. Most recently it was used by the Adrian Public Schools to house the adult education program. Construction is nearing completion in this building and it will soon be used for our City Commission meetings and by our city police department. Recently the focus is on detail work such as the repair of the wood work and painting throughout the building. Tom from Krieghoff-Lenawee has been working on repairing the damaged wood and duplicating the original architectural design.

Signage for City Complex Project

The signage for the City Commission Chambers building (former Post Office and Board of Education Building) was installed this week by Sign Language, a local signage company owned by Rick Calvin. Sign Language created and install the signage on all of the city complex buildings. The signage was created to coordinate with the historic architecture of the older buildings and to compliment the modern library and police station.

Library Elevator

Last week the Library's elevator work was completed and we passed our state inspection. To say the elevator project was a challenge is an understatement. I want to thank our patrons and my staff for your patience over the last six months as we worked on this project. I also want to thank Kriegoff-Lenawee for their persistence in completing this project. The good news is that the elevator project is completed and ready for use!!!!! The library director, Carol Souchock, joins Dave and Dave from Otis in the first elevator ride.

Brick Work Progressing On Police Station

Hikes & Dominque, our masons, are working hard to get the new police station sealed up for the winter. They were working on the south side of the building earlier today.
