The City of Winter Park will close its City Hall building at the end of the month for termite treatment.
The civic building will be placed under a blue tent during the Thanksgiving holiday for fumigation purposes – not to be confused with gift wrap. Do not open that present. The gas is harmful to humans and pets.
City Hall will close from Wednesday, November 27 through Sunday, December 1 and reopen for regular business hours on Monday, December 2.
Evidence that would suggest the presence of dry-wood termites was found inside the City Commission dais and are expected to have infiltrated other parts of the building.
“To prevent an infestation, it was more economical to fumigate the building to eliminate the live termites and larvae, compared to the costs associated with rebuilding the wood furniture.” – City Manager Randy Knight
