New public works building completed

SOLON– “The new shop is completed,” Solon Public Works Director Scott Kleppe reported to members of the city council last week. “Thank you very much for your support.”
Kleppe has moved his office and the city’s fleet across the street from its old location into a new 64-by-45 foot Energy Panel Structures (EPS) post frame building.
The new Solon Public Works building features three front bays and a side bay, and something the old shop was lacking– a floor drain.

Have you read this?

A new thriller by Swedish author Lars Kepler has been added to the collection but is usually checked out and not on the shelf. “The Hypnotist” is impossible to put down. Placed in Sweden, a gruesome triple-homicide gathers the attention of Detective Inspector Joona Linna. The killer is still on the loose, and there’s only one surviving witness– the boy whose family was killed in front of him. Whoever committed the crimes wanted this boy to die; the victim of more than 100 knife wounds, he has lapsed into a state of shock. Desperate for information, Linna sees only one option: hypnotism.
