Albany -- The money will be used to improve the facades on the facility which are now having problems with leaks. That's causing paint to peel off the walls.

The project is expected to have long-term results, keeping the $30 million facility free of similar problems for the next 30 years or more.

"We will be addressing reworking the exterior facades to make them more maintenance friendly and to provide new permanent facings on them that will make it easier to maintain and easier to keep clean," David Maschke said Architect

 The project will be paid for with sales tax revenue and should take about a year to complete.
