Following a lengthy discussion Monday and input from library board members and administrators, the Lewistown City Commission unanimously approved having City Manager Holly Phelps negotiate with a contractor on a bid to resurface the exterior of the Lewistown Library, a historic City building.

“We are pursuing renovation on the exterior of the building, which we propose will take place this summer,” Lewistown Public Library Director Kellyanne Terry said.

According to Library Board Chair Mary Frieze, this project is a long time coming (more than 25 years), as the library has “built up its Depreciation Reserve Fund” to pay for it.

City Manager Holly Phelps said the bidding process is next on the agenda for the project, which she expects will begin soon.
