The library trustees met with Eric Paulson and Anthony Mento of the architectural firm S.M.P and construction manager Andre Kloetz of Bauen Co to discuss proposed plans for an addition to the library. S.M.P and Bauen worked on a cost estimate and came up with $1,900,000. Trustees chairman Gordon Hunt asked S.M.P. and Bauen to cut at least 10% out of the proposed cost. S.M.P noted there is $150,000 included in the estimate that is set aside for a contingency fund for unanticipated costs.
