Residents and visitors entering the Vandalia City Hall in the near future will do so through new front doors on the south end and upgraded doors on the north end of the building. At Monday night’s council meeting, the board approved a bid from Door Controls, Inc. by Dorma for a total of $13,400 for the projects. Mayor Rick Gottman explained to the council that the front, or south doors, were actually not safe at the moment as they are heavy and City Clerk Peggy Bowen says many times the door is propped open because of the way they slam shut. With the improvements, the doors at the north end will be fit with low energy automatic door openers with wireless push plates and the south doors will be replaced and new doors also with the low energy automatic door openers with wireless push plates will be installed. The doors on both ends will be ADA compliant.
