Crews will demolish the former Meeker building over the course of a four-week period that began the week of June 8. Facilities Maintenance and Planning Director Gerry Peters said work will proceed as quickly as possible so paving and landscaping can begin around the new building.

Although heavy rain, lightning and thunderstorms could cause delays, some rain can be an advantage, Peters said.

“Light rain actually provides favorable conditions for demolition because it reduces dust,” he said.
