Commission addresses delays on Honoraville Senior Center

While it appears as though the Honoraville Senior Center is completed, there are still several issues that need to be addressed before it can be used.

The Crenshaw County Commission has run into problems securing a warranty for the building because several areas need to be improved before it can be certified as weather-tight.

Last week, commissioner Ricky McElwain and administrator David Smyth met with representatives from project contractor Lewis and Associates, the USDA and other companies to discuss the project.

“According to the architect, we have some serious issues to address,” said commission chairman Ronnie Hudson.

The original completion date for the project was March 28, however, the latest agreement sets the completion date for the week of September 6.

“The building has to be completed before they go in and start using it,” said McElwain.

In other business at Monday’s meeting, the commission heard a request from the Sheriff’s Office to raise the speed limit on County Roads 77 and 11 to 55 miles per hour.

The commission decided to table the request until they could confer with county engineer Benjie Sanders and the Department of Transportation.
