NORTH SAANICH — A $2.5 million partial reconstruction of the District of North Saanich municipal hall begins on Monday, Nov. 2 as the ground is officially broken.

District councillors and Verity Construction representatives will put shovels in the ground for a ceremony at 1:30 p.m. at the existing hall, to mark the start of the project.

The work is expected to remedy several problems with the building, including decay, structural and plumbing deficiencies and improve its ability to withstand an earthquake.

Plans for the redesigned building are available at northsaanich.ca.
