The city hall construction project in Cape Girardeau is on track to be completed before the end of the year. In late May 2020, construction began to turn the historic Common Pleas Courthouse into Cape Girardeau’s New City Hall. The new city hall will take the place of building that was originally built in 1937. Officials say the new facility will be more user friendly to customers and it will have more room and improvements. Officials say city employees will have much more space in the new facility and they will have much more electricity. They say the current building was built in the 30′s as an elementary school and as a result they have many extension cords and they don’t have much of data connections that they need. So, when they get to the new building, all that stuff will be hard wired. Crews are working on windows, painting, and flooring and soon will be working on trim work inside to finish up the work. The expected completion date for the new building is December 1.
