HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Thursday is the last day for contractors to submit bids to build the new city hall in Harrisonburg.
After the 2 p.m. bidding deadline, we'll know how many people are interested in building the new municipal building and how much they think the whole project will cost.
This is happening a few weeks after a lawsuit was filed against the city by a group that said planners did not properly communicate with the planning commission about the project; however, that suit was dismissed.
Ande Banks, who is helping to lead the project, said it's time put the finishing touches on plans.
"You're not just a building a building where people will go to work Monday through Friday from 8 to 5, but you're building part of a community's soul. We're building a new chapter in our community's history. One that we'll look back and our grandchildren will look back and say in 2014, 2015 the city went forward and built a new city hall," said Banks.
Banks said the project is a few months behind right now as a result of the lawsuit. As of now, the timetable has crews breaking ground sometime next month and then completing the project late next year.
