The Nebraska City Veteran’s Memorial Building will soon have new windows and doors.
The Pella Window Company and the Nebraska City Veteran’s Memorial Building Project Corporation have entered into an agreement to replace 120 windows and 11 doors at a cost of $568,708.17, which will be paid for by the Corporation.
Corporation representatives Jim Kuhn and Brad Moyer thanked the Wirth Foundation for their assistance with the project during the April 15 Nebraska City City Council meeting.
Pella has indicated it will donate about $50,000 to the corporation in honor of Ted Beilman, who was instrumental in getting the project underway.
Pella will begin producing the custom-made windows and doors and will begin installation around Memorial Day.
Kuhn said Pella plans to have the installation complete by July 4.
During the installation process, the Veteran’s Memorial Building parking lot will be unavailable for the Thursday summer Farmers Markets.
Council members voted to approve a plan from Nebraska City Tourism and Commerce to block 8th Street from the alley to 1st Corso on Thursday afternoons during June from 3:45 to 6 p.m. for the market.
After the window and door project is complete, the Farmers Market will resume its location in the parking lot.
During the April 15 meeting, the council also approved an NCTC request to use the sunken parking lot in the 700 block of Central Avenue for the annual Summer Saturday Film Series.
Movies will be shown at dusk on Saturday evenings from June 1 through Aug. 3.
The council also approved an NCTC request to close Central Avenue from 7th to 8th streets on Sunday, Aug. 18, for the third annual Farm to Fork meal.
