John Hargreaves has announced that the damage to the Civic Library is so bad that it might be closed another two weeks following last week’s storms.
â€œWater damage from rain and hail occurred when it broke through ceiling panels and flowed under doors, soaking carpets, books, equipment, and electrical wiring in several areas of the library,â€ said Mr Hargreaves.
â€œOver 1000 litres of water was removed in the initial cleanup, and assessment and further cleanup of the damage is continuing. Replacement of carpet on the lower ground floor is likely…
â€œAt present, it is uncertain when the library will be fully operational, however it is hoped that limited services will be available within a fortnight.
High roofs people, high roofs prevent this sort of thing AND provide an attic.
UPDATED: The CT’s rising star, Diana Streak, has more on this with the Greens asking why the Section 84 development seems the hardest hit and justifiably asking if Simon Corbell’s buddies at QIC have done a great job. QIC say they’ve built in compliance with all the codes and Simon says they codes are great.
