Battle Creek City Hall is open for business!
Building Restoration Inc. has built a tunnel/cover that is now in place over the east, public entrance to City Hall as a safety measure while staff continues an assessment of the building.
Assessment of City Hall began earlier this month when a piece of the building façade broke away during repair work on the more than 100-year-old building. The suspected cause of that break is water damage.
Building Restoration Inc. continues work to assess the building, and city staff have contacted a forensic structural engineering firm that could help assess further damage.
It is expected the cover will remain over the east entrance for the foreseeable future. Regular City Hall hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
