Starting Monday, March 4 and most likely continuing for several days, a geothermal test bore will take place in the library parking lot to determine the future energy source of the new library. The public should expect that parking will be impacted for several days as the rig arrives, drills, then is removed. Some level of noise will also be a factor as drilling will be followed by a generator running to conduct a conductivity test. We apologize for the inconvenience.
