Baton Rouge library architect contract in limbo

BATON ROUGE - The $19 million Baton Rouge downtown library faces yet another hurdle when the East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council meets this week.

The council is set to consider on Wednesday whether to approve a contract for the project's architect.

The library project won council approval twice in the past 20 months.

However, the project can't move forward until the council approves a contract with an architect to design it.

In a memo to council members dated April 26, Department of Public Works Director William Daniel recommended that the council approve the $1.5 million architect's contract at the council's May 9 meeting. Instead, the council deferred action on the contract for two weeks after motions to approve and reject it failed.
