Main Library Elevator?
Question Corner: August 2014
From the August, 2014 issue
Q: The elevator at the downtown library has been out of service for a couple months, and a sign says it "will be out of service for the foreseeable future." What's the problem? Isn't there any money in the budget for maintenance?
A: The struggle is with technology, not budget. The five-story hydraulic jack that raises and lowers the elevator failed its latest safety test and will have to be replaced.
