    City projects near completion
    Two major city of Brenham building projects are nearing completion.
     
    City Manager Terry Roberts said Thursday that a new animal shelter and the expansion/renovation of Nancy Carol Roberts Memorial Library are “in the punch list phase,” meaning both are being reviewed to ensure the work meets specifications.

    Roberts said work on the animal shelter is “about a month ahead” of the library project.
     
    While work on the library building itself is virtually complete, the parking lot is still left to complete, he added.
     
    “Those projects are coming to fruition,” said Roberts.
     
    Both are expected to be opened to the public in the next few months.
     
    Wende Ragonis, director of Community Services, said she is hopeful the library will be completed by November.
     
    Ragonis said she has already “reached out” to the Brenham and Burton school districts about the new features the library will have.
     
    That includes enhanced computer and Internet capabilities.
     
    Both the animal shelter and library projects included significant funding from private sources.
