ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the new Kalona Community Center.

The center is on schedule for an open house and ribbon-cutting on Saturday, Aug. 25, and will be officially open for business on Monday, Aug. 27.

“We did a four-hour walk-through with the architects,” City Administrator Ryan Schlabaugh said during Monday’s city council meeting. “We came up with a good punch list.”

Schlabaugh added that state building inspectors have visited on three occasions for preliminary inspections, with the official inspection set for Thursday, Aug. 9.

“That’s when we will get the building occupancy permit,” Schlabaugh said. “There are just a couple of things to focus on between now and then.”

Next week, the gym bleachers and scoreboard, as well as other equipment will arrive.

A mailer will be sent out to citizens next week, and a message was included in recent water bills.

“There will be no official tours, but we will have a lot of staff throughout the building to answer questions as people walk through,” Schlabaugh said.

The open house will run from 1-4 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony set for 1:30 p.m.
