The group out to restore the West Liberty town hall is nearly ready to begin Phase II of its restoration efforts in a project that will necessitate relocation of village offices beginning this fall.

A renovation committee formed by the West Liberty Historical Society has raised about $175,000 of the $203,000 it needs to complete the middle portion of its three-part plan to rehabilitate the town hall building in time for the village’s bicentennial celebration in 2017.

Members of the renovation committee have informed council that village offices will need to be relocated for the duration of Phase II, which the historical society hopes to begin by September.

Village officials are currently planning to be moved out of the town hall by Oct. 1, and will relocate to the community room in the rear of the Logan County District Library branch at 117 N. Detroit St. through the end of the year.

Improvements as part of Phase II include renovating the entire first floor, upgrading the plumbing, heating, cooling, and electrical systems and adding public restrooms.
