Blind River council will be going ahead with replacing three damaged windows at the Blind River Public Library.
Council agrees to spend up to $17,500 on library windows and will look at the remaining window replacements next year.
Two damaged back windows in the building have been a concern for the board for the last few years and the council wants to improve ventilation and air quality following the pandemic.
Council wanted the Library Board to pay up to $17,500 of the $35,000 tender, but the board says it cannot afford to do so since it has approved replacing computers, new flooring, and hiring a student.
In turn, the council agreed to replace the two windows at the back and one at the front and will look at replacing the other windows as part of next year’s budget.
