Several volunteers including area youth groups, city officials and Hebron citizens ransacked the Pioneer Center Saturday as the city’s renovation project got underway.
Workers tore out insulation, downed walls, threw out ceiling tiles, and trashed paneling as the first step in the process calling for a general “gutting” of the facility.
In the weeks to come, electrical work, a new ceiling, handicap accessible restroom, a new furnace, new kitchen cabinets and four new doors will be added. Also included in the upgrades is the construction of a new Chamber of Commerce business office.
City of Hebron officials put a $50,000 spending lid on the upgrades and are relying on volunteers from the community to keep costs down. Several citizens have stepped forward.
