Who: The contract agreement for the work is with Douglas J. Faszer Construction, of Galt.
When: The work was started June 5 and performed in between regular city council meetings.committees, commissions and boards that use the chamber for their meetings had to find alternative locations over the last two weeks.
Why: The city is seeking to update the aesthetics of the room, as it is has not been updated in possibly decades. A separate contract to replace the sound system is in the works.
How: The modernization is being funded by $50,000 in Public, Educational and Government fees from the Metro Cable Commission.
