    City projects on schedule
    Two major city of Brenham projects are expected to be complete in the next few months.
     
    Construction of a new animal shelter and a renovated and expanded Nancy Carol Roberts Memorial Library are essentially “on schedule,” but completion is still contingent on whether any time is lost because of bad weather, said City Manager Terry Roberts.

    The new animal shelter, a $2.7 million project, is being built next to the Brenham Police Department. It will be about twice the size of the existing facility but will have three times the kennel space.
     
    The library is getting a $3,589,420 expansion and renovation.
     
    About half of the costs of both projects was funded through private sources.
     
    Roberts said the animal shelter completion target date is April 16, but it in all likelihood will be a few weeks after that.
     
    The library project was initially set back by a delay in receiving roofing materials. Roberts said the library reopening will probably be sometime in September or October.
     
    “Both projects will be ready for opening this year,” he said.
