According to MECO Engineering, the consultant out of Boonville that performed the most recent study of the system, replacing the system on both the lower and main floors of the building would cost more than $1 million.

Smith said if and when the council moves forward with construction, the most likely source of financing right now would be the fund balance. But City Administrator Steve Crowell said it may be possible to find other sources of funding as things move forward, reminding council members that the most important factor is not that the project is completed fast, but that it is done well. Im not too worried about doing it quicker. Im more concerned with doing it right, Crowell said. The committee opted to approve a recommendation to move a design contract for both floors of the building with MECO Engineering forward at an estimated cost of roughly $83,000.
