 Fenton — Fenton City Council accepted a bid from THA Architects, based in Flint, to conduct a feasibility study for the Fenton Jack R. Winegarden Library for a cost not to exceed $6,000.

 The study would determine the condition of the library building, and what the best course of action is for the building’s future, whether that be an addition, a new building, or something else entirely. The study will only cover the current building, and not any other buildings to determine if they could potentially house a library.

 Councilman Benjamin Smith was happy to see progress with the library. “I applaud loudly for moving forward with this,” he said. “I am pleased we got to this step.”

 The council’s representative to the Library Board, Councilman Bradley Jacob, said that the feasibility study would be a good first step to figuring out what the building’s problems are.

 City Manager Lynn Markland said that the feasibility study will help determine if there are short-term fixes the library may need, and if there are any long term actions the city may need to look at down the road.

 The feasibility study is expected to take about four weeks, after which a representative from THA Architects will present their findings to the council.
