After a successful bond election, in which voters approved the millage for a
Library expansion, the Otsego County Building Authority hired Integrity Construction Service
of Gaylord to manage the project. Upon further review of the plans,
it was determined that costs would come in higher than projected.

The Library staff and our architectural firm Sidock Group, also of Gaylord,
rolled up our sleeves and came up with a redesign that fit within our budget
while at the same time maintaining the size and functional spaces that were
promised in the campaign.

On September 28, bids were opened at a public meeting. The totals came
in well within our construction budget, allowing excavating and concrete
work to begin. The project will be phased out over several months, with
completion expected by Fall 2018.
