DELPHOS — The Delphos Public Library Board of Trustees knocked several items off its to-do list Wednesday.
Earlier this year, it was noted that the back corner of the meeting room in the main library building was sinking. The board gave Director Nancy Mericle the green light to accept quotes from local contractors for repairs.
“The one company we contacted was hesitant to give us a ball-park figure for a quote because they weren’t sure how long it would take or what they would find after they start drilling into the floor,” Mericle said. “Recently, I found out that Vonderwell Contracting came in and looked at it and said they would get back to us with an estimate. They got back with us and said they would probably drill holes into the floor and pump concrete in to level the floor out.
“The estimate they gave us was for $935. Our custodian, Norb Renner, said this was done out at Landeck and it worked very well, plus we wouldn’t have to deal with the problems of having the floor torn up.”
