Arcade letters

   Painting and other repairs to Belmond’s downtown arcade are now underway. The jobs will include welding, re-fastening, gutter cleaning/repair, and painting. The work will be done by Larson Contracting of Lake Mills and other subcontractors.

  The painting of poles started last week. This week, letters on the fascia started to come down so that painting could proceed.

  When parking downtown, drivers are asked to watch for areas where repairs are underway, and give the workers plenty of room. Do not park where work is in progress. The project will last a number of weeks.

  Money for the arcade improvements is coming from the Jacobson Fund for Belmond.
