    But don’t be surprised, since the City/DDA is involved in this project, to see them go way beyond the ordinary limits imposed on other contractors. Early in the process for the library lot structure, contractors came in and removed the trees and planters in front of the library and were allowed to work well past midnight with machinery and jackhammers, and of course, no notice to residents.
