Ingleside council continues work on city facilities
The Ingleside Public Library has recovered from Hurricane Harvey; the Ingleside City Hall, however, has a different story, according to City officials.
Repairs to the Library building have been completed and the books were “mostly undamaged” explained City Secretary Kimberley Sampson. The books had been covered before the storm and weren’t impacted by the wind-driven rain which entered the building through the roof she said.
The library now has a new roof, a new floor, and new ceiling tiles. In addition, the mold has been successfully removed and the walls have been repainted.
The story at the Ingleside City Hall, is also expected to end well, but will not be complete until sometime in February.
Officials pointed out some of the water damage at city hall came through the roof, but some came through the windows even though they had been boarded up. During the repairs, asbestos was discovered in the building, which caused part of the delay. In addition, the facility needed to be redesigned to come into compliance with ADA requirements in order to qualify for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds.
