STERLING – The Sterling City Council returns to the Coliseum on Monday.

The council has been meeting in the City Hall Annex, 20 W. Third St. in the Library Plaza, during the $4.5 million Coliseum renovation project.

Beginning Monday, the council will return to the Coliseum, 212 Third Ave., for its meetings. Monday’s meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

Among other parts of the building’s renovation, a geothermal heating and cooling system and more insulation was installed, the plumbing and electric equipment was replaced, and the police dispatch area was expanded. Renovations also include a $58,575 video surveillance system to help protect police officers and staff.

In December 2010, the council voted to issue up to $4.5 million in taxable general obligation bonds to repair and rebuild the 80-year-old Coliseum. In May 2012, the city awarded a $4.6 million contract to Sjostrom and Sons Construction of Rockford.
