Rockwood Electric Utility will likely be paying more than planned on its new downtown digs.
Because of an increasing project scope since the initial design, the estimate has increased.
The size of the planned building has increased — from 19,000 square feet to 21,000 square feet. That would cost an estimated $400,000 more.
Other upgrades were made to meet LEED Silver certification (environmental standards). That’s estimated to add $100,000 to the bill, and a geothermal HVAC system could add another $200,000.
