Two of the most popular hang-outs in New York Mills are taking on a bit of a new look. The city is remodeling inside both the Senior Citizens Center and Mills Liquors. The Seniors Citizens Center is being re-painted this week and new carpet will be installed soon.

Mills Liquors will see a little more extensive interior work. The ductwork and other areas above the ceiling have been cleaned and new ceiling tiles installed. The bottle shop will also be repainted for a fresh new look. As far as the on-sale, above the ceiling work will also be done including cleaning the ductwork. The dark ceiling tiles will be replaced by a lighter color to brighten up the place. The on-sale will be re-painted and new carpet installed. Also included in the remodeling, the wood bar countertop will be refinished.

Now that the statewide smoking ban is in place the city is taking the opportunity to replace the old ceiling tiles and repaint the establishment to remove any lingering effects of the old smoking days in the bar.

Derrick Teberg of New York Mills is doing the work in the ceilings - cleaning the ductwork and the area above the false ceiling. Carl Crews of Perham is the carpenter who is doing several pieces of the work: tearing down the old ceiling/grid and replacing it all with new ceiling tiles/grid work, painting the walls, and refinishing the bar counter top. Dave Cardini (Dave's Flooring) of Sebeka is replacing the carpet.

The city's invite list for bidders included between 15 and 18 local area contacts, but the bid response was very low.

There were just two bidders on the carpet work, one bidder on the work that Crews is doing, and a pair of other bidders from Detroit Lakes and Pelican Rapids for the work that Teberg is doing. The carpet layer that did not get the bid was from Perham, leaving Teberg as the only bidder actually from NYMills.
