Vicksburg municipal officials last month took another step toward construction of a new village office.
During their Dec. 19 meeting, village council members approved a motion to manage the bid process related to the project.
Village Manager Jim Mallery said the new building has been on the village’s radar since 2017 and required disciplined financial planning in order to follow through with the project.
Frederick Construction has aided the village in navigating a path toward groundbreaking. Frederick’s senior estimator Ryan Collins provided the council an overview of the process, noting that a design was chosen in July.
Groundbreaking could take place as soon as April.
The current municipal office is more than 60 years old, village officials said.
