Second Phase of Police Barracks Project to tentatively resume in two weeks
Friday, January 16th, 2015
Two weeks into 2015, and work has not yet resumed on the second phase of the police barracks project as previously indicated. The delay is attributed to the lack of time from construction agents Gaby’s Construction who undertook the project for no charge. Owner of Gaby’s Construction and Deputy Mayor of San Pedro, Gabriel “Gaby” Nuñez has stated that construction is now tentatively scheduled to resume in two weeks. Currently only the foundation and first floor walls have been constructed.
Nuñez, who is donating both his and his workers service, indicated that the construction company is in a tight schedule with other contracts, but will resume work on the police barracks as soon as possible. “We are expecting to have some free time to start some time within the next two weeks. Once we start working again it won’t take long to complete the building,” said Nuñez.
The second building will have the same design as the first barracks building. It will have two bedrooms on the second floor, while the first floor will have one bedroom and a recreational facility for the San Pedro Cadet Corps. Each room will have a private bathroom. Nuñez has indicated that some items are still needed to complete the project including windows, doors, interior furnishings, and bathroom fixtures.
Anyone wanting to make additional donations, either monetary or in materials, can contact Deputy Mayor Gabriel Nuñez at 605-0976 or Inspector Henry Jemmott at 600-6523.
