Stockbridge City Council last week approved nearly $1 million in expenditures for needed repair work on three city buildings.

The bulk of the work consists of heating and air conditioning improvements. The council approved at its July 9 regular meeting a bid by Addison Smith Mechanical and authorized just over $865,000 for the work.

Three condensing units and three chilled water cooling coils will be replaced at City Hall along with other modifications necessary for the overall operation of the system. A 40-ton chiller is being installed at the Merle Manders Conference Center along with a gas-fired boiler, air handling units, new ductwork, chilled water piping and hot water piping. Two units will be insulated in the Municipal Court building with ductwork and other accessories.

Two other bids from W.A.Y. Construction were approved for separate work on the Municipal Court building. Work on the lower level includes one courtroom area, one waiting/drug screening area, two probation areas, three ATT/client areas, one bathroom area, one cashier area and one lobby area. The upper level will see the construction of one corridor area along with assorted repairs on the entire floor including sheetrock repair, painting, the additional of a wall to a partition, and the repair of damaged and missing ceiling tiles.
