As the renovations and expansion to the Falls Church City Hall move toward completion, the F.C. Council acted out of an abundance of caution Monday night to authorize an extension from the end of March to mid-May of its lease on the temporary City Hall digs constituting 9,276 square feet on three floors at 400 N. Washington Street.

The cost of the extension is not to exceed $27,000. IT and fire control systems in the renovated City Hall need to qualify for a certificate of occupancy, the Council was told, and the work requires the coordination of five vendors.

While the work is expected to be done by the end of April, the Council chose to extend the lease another two weeks, for 45 days total, to accommodate any unexpected hiccups.
