At 43 Trapstraat in the center of Zottegem, the scaffolding has been installed and work has begun on renewing the roof and gutters of the city building, which used to house the administration of public works and urban planning.
After the OCMW council first gave the green light for the public tender procedure on May 17, 2021, the execution of these works was assigned by the Permanent Office of the OCMW on November 8 of last year to the local bvba Timmer- en Dakwerken Peter D’Hoker. from Leeuwergem. The cost was estimated at EUR 101,498.36. The work should be completed by the construction holiday at the latest. The intention is that later on, embellishment works will also be carried out on the street facade and that, in addition to a general refurbishment, the electricity and sanitary installations will be renewed inside, as well as a kitchen fitted out.
More than a year and a half ago, Evelien De Both and Peter Vansintjan, as aldermen of patrimony and social affairs at the time, gave some explanation about what the city council intends to do with this building.
