DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Workers are set to move back into the newly-renovated Des Moines City Hall by the end of the month.

The Des Moines Register reports that city clerk's office will be the first to reopen at City Hall on Feb. 26. Other offices will return each week until the transition is completed on April 2.

City Hall has been closed since June 2016 as the 108-year-old building underwent a $5.5 million renovation to replace outdated heating and cooling systems and add fire sprinklers.

A city spokeswoman says the Des Moines City Council will hold its first meeting in the historic council chambers on April 9 since moving out.
