BOONE, Iowa—Boone Police Chief Bill Skare says the Police Department Office will be closed Thursday morning from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM while brick work is being done to the entryway of the downtown office. Skare says the work is expected to be completed by noon. Earlier this week, the concrete steps were jack hammered out and temporary steps were constructed. While the front entryway is closed, the office will still be manned, so anyone with an emergency would be able to call 9-1-1 or anyone with other business for the department could call 432-3456. The replacement of the entryway was one part of the approved project to remove the old facade and make an effort to restore the structure. Once the facade was removed, bids were sought to do the restoration work. Grabau Construction has been working with the City to do this work.
