    Austin Montgomery/Beloit Daily News Rockford CM Services Construction Manager Garrett Jones gives a tour of the Beloit City Hall, 100 State St., fourth floor construction as work continues on the building that was constructed in 1981. Work is expected to wrap up this fall.

BELOIT - City Hall in Beloit is in the midst of renovations and officials say the project remains on schedule for re-opening the first and fourth floors this fall.

"We are right where we thought we would be, and demolition has been completed," said construction manager at Rockford CM Services Garrett Jones. "It's moving right along."

Walk through the main doors today and you'd be greeted by a wall of plastic tarp, sealing off the forum area from the main hallway to the Beloit Police Department. The forum space is almost unrecognizable, with exposed wood and sand at the seating area.

The $750,000 project by Klobucar Construction will update the forum space on the first floor, bringing the pit-style seating to at-grade level and add a large conference room for pre-meeting agenda review sessions.

Security improvements are also being made to the building that was constructed in 1981.

Improvements on the fourth floor will include a larger conference room and additional office space.

Construction started in July and throughout the process, both the second and third floors have remained open. City administration and all city meetings, including Beloit City Council, have relocated to the city's engineering facility, 2400 Springbrook Court.

Municipal court has also been relocated to the engineering facility during construction.

Jones said the project could be done in October at the earliest, but stressed the timeline for the project could change. The city announced in April the project would be done by the end of November.

Electrical work and drywall will be added in the coming days, Jones said.

The project is funded by allocations made to the city's past three capital improvement plans, with future renovations possible for the second and third floors.
