The New Jesse M. Smith Memorial Library
"Cornerstone of the Community"

09 August 2006

Site Work Begins

With the contract signed and all approvals granted, Burman has moved a construction trailer onto the site and begun some preliminary clearance work. A chain-link fence will soon be erected, as will a sign. Preparations continue for the groundbreaking. A spokesman for the company reports that ordinary hours of work will be 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays, with occasional Saturdays. And the new building committee has hired a clerk of the works: Dan Joubert, a longtime Burrillville resident with impressive credentials and a firm understanding that the new library is an important addition to the community and the cornerstone of the entire Stillwater Mill redevelopment project. After a lengthy selection process that included interviews, Dan was the unanimous choice of the committee.
