WORK HAS FINALLY BEGUN ON THE NEW ENGLEWOOD-CAPE HAZE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUILDING AFTER FINAL PERMITS WERE ISSUED LAST WEEK.  ACCORDING TO THE ENGLEWOOD EDGE, CREW BEGAN DIGGING UP PARTS OF THE SITE IN PREPARATION FOR POURING THE SLAB FOR THE BUILDING.  HOWEVER, THEY FOUND SEWER PIPES WHICH WERE LOWER THAN EXPECTED, SO THERE MIGHT BE A SLIGHT DELAY.  WORK WAS DELAYED SEVERAL TIMES ON THE PROJECT BECAUSE OF PERMITTING ISSUES AND POSSIBLE GOPHER TORTUSES WHICH WERE REPORTEDLY REMOVED.  BILL TRUEX, THE OWNER OF TRUEX PREFERRED CONSTRUCTION, THE GENERAL CONTRACTOR FOR THE PROJECT, TOLD THE EDGE THAT THEY HAVE ABOUT NINE MONTHS TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT, AND THEY HOPE TO BEAT THAT BY AT LEAST A MONTH.  HE HOPES TO POUR THE SLAB A WEEK FROM THURSDAY AND BEGIN RIPPING OUT THE OLD SIDEWALK AT THE BEGINNING OF NEXT MONTH.
