By Michael Butler

The Tallassee Recreation Center has been been undergoing renovations on Gilmer Avenue.

Tallassee Parks and Recreation director Rick Golden talked about the upgrades.

"We're getting the roof worked on to stop the leaks," Golden said. "We're getting energy efficient windows, insulation, central heat and air conditioning installed."

Most of the work is complete.

"It's a patch job on the roof. Most of it was leaking."

The estimated cost for the upgreades is $116,000. A good portion of that price is in the heating and cooling system.

"There are other things we want to do to remodel it. This is phase one."
