Site work started as an old pumping station had to be removed in preparation for the new building.

The new structure will be built between the existing city hall and Cunningham Boulevard. The site encompasses the existing employee parking lot.

During construction, parking will be restricted to the current city hall parking lot.

Havelock employees will continue to work in the existing city hall until the new structure is complete. At that time, the employees will move into the new structure and the old one will be demolished.

Parts of the existing city hall are more than 70 years old.

“The people that haven’t been in the building and worked in the building know that it appears to be in good shape from the outside but the building is not in good shape as it would appear,” Sanders said.

City commissioners originally considered renovating the old building, but in the end, voted for the new construction.
