Like many others in McCook, I have been watching the progress of the new city building and it seems like it is coming right along. But I understand there is a snag. It seems as though someone does not like the color of the building and now finds it necessary to repaint to a color more pleasing to their taste. Now, really. does anyone know how much this preference will cost? It will be necessary to rent a boom for the painter to reach the upper parts of the building,, then the cost of ... I would guess ... 50 gallons of paint and the labor to apply such paint.
I believe for the thousands it would cost to apply a different color, I could look at the building the color it is. Could anyone else?
City Manager Jeff Hancock responds: "The cement board area (top area as opposed to the grey metal at the bottom) was painted a green, however it was painted in semi-gloss paint. It should have been painted a flat. The contractors will have it repainted at no cost to the city."
