- A library in the Northwoods met their fundraising goals for a new addition.
Now the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library in Eagle River could see changes to their original plan.
The Eagle River city council members told the library trustees to look for new bids.
This could result in changes to the design that the library fund-raised for over the past two years.
Design and Build by Visner in Eagle River designed the expansion plan they fund-raised for.
"I think there was some disappointment on the part of the person that created the conceptual design that we fund-raised with," said Library Trustees President Tina Koller. "But they've stepped up to the plate and are willing to participate in the bidding process. So this is where I think we can really move forward today."
The library started talking about renovations in 2002, but the fundraising for expansion didn't start until 2011.
Through pledges, the board of trustees met their goal and raised more than two million dollars.
"I know many people have asked since we announced that we met our fundraising goal "What's happening?" and "When is it going to happen?", said Koller. "That's a little bit uncertain at this time, projects like this are complicated."
The expansion could more than double the size of the building to just under 14,000 square feet.
The Trustees president said this would help with modernization of the library.
The board members hope to break ground in two years.
