Padang to have new City Hall by year's end
The city of Padang in West Sumatra will have a new City Hall by the end of the year to replace the former one that was damaged in the 2009 earthquake, according to Padang's Public Works Agency head Herman Peri.
“Construction of the City Hall is 28 percent complete” he said.
He added that he hoped the construction would be 100 percent complete by the end of 2012, so that City Hall activities in Padang could be moved to the new building.
Construction documents indicate that the planned City Hall will cost an estimated Rp 106.16 billion (US$11.21 million) to build.
The building will be 17,173.5 square meters, Antara News agency reported on Thursday. (png/iwa)
