Drama Center Change Order OK'd

Work on renovating the Cookeville Drama Center has gotten a bit more complicated. Leisure Services director Rick Woods told the city council this month that the need to put pilings into bedrock led to a change order. Woods also says that the contractor has asked for some additional time to finish the project because it has been an exceptionally rainy spring season, but says that change order has yet to be presented to the council. Meanwhile, the Great TV Auction, benefitting Cookeville's public television station, kicks off Thursday night from the Cookeville Drama Center. Becky Magura is general manager of Channel 22 and says they hope the 27th annual auction will be one of the best ever, although they admit it may be tougher than usual because of the economic downturn. The auction runs through Sunday of this week and also next Thursday through Sunday. For more information, you can call 528-2222.
