County braces for inconvenience as building repairs begin

It's going to be a tough but productive summer as work on several building projects proceeds, predicts Pierce County Building Committee Chairman Dan Reis.

"You're going to see some real results in very short order," Reis told county staff and county board members last week.

But the progress won't come without pain.

"Everyone in here (the courthouse and office building) is going to be disrupted some time, somehow," said Reis.

He advised, "Get used to it. That's the way we're going to have to do business."

While work on the fairgrounds grandstand and blue storage building is on track to be finished this week, installation of new heating and air conditioning equipment and generators for the courthouse and office building is just beginning.
