PTC set to borrow and spend more than $400K to fix up building for seniors

Plans to renovate the former recreation administration building in Peachtree City are expected to proceed in an effort to have the building used for senior leisure programs offered by Fayette Senior Services.

The building, located off McIntosh Trail in the Shakerag recreation complex that includes the Gathering Place, has been vacant since the recreation department last year was reorganized and moved to offices at the Kedron Fieldhouse and Aquatic Center.

The low bidder, Albion Scaccia at $363,625, is expected to be approved by the City Council Thursday night. The city will spend another $52,000 in construction administration fees with Pond and Company, the city’s building engineering consulting firm which will manage the project on-site including the monitoring of work.

There are hopes that the project will remain under its original budget of $462,000 so a front entrance driveway and enhanced handicapped parking can be added, along with a new exterior awning and exterior painting. All of those extras put together would cost $46,000.

The renovations are being funded with $3 million borrowed using the public facilities authority bond that was approved by council last year.

A big part of the cost is due to reinforcements needed for the flooring system because the building is moving from an office use to an assembly use, city officials have said previously.
