Naperville's moving day beats snag By Peggy Rector The first scheduled move into Naperville's new $16 million Municipal Center was accomplished on schedule over the weekend despite a last-minute holdup on the occupancy permit. Naperville's building inspectors had refused early last week to issue an occupancy permit for the center at Aurora Avenue and Eagle Street. But Mayor Sam Macrane said Monday that both the permit and the certificate of substantial completion signed by the architect had been received by Friday afternoon, clearing the way for the move. Walt Newman, director of community development, said last week that inspectors withheld an occupancy permit after a routine inspection turned up certain problems, including inadequate stair railings. After that information was disclosed, however, Newman's department refused to comment further on the issue, referring all calls to the city manager's office. On Friday, Assistant City Manager Craig Blomquist also refused to comment on the specific concerns raised in the inspection, saying only, "We're trying to keep this on a more positive note." Three departments that had been housed in leased space moved into the center over the weekend: community relations, data processing and human services. The rest of the offices are scheduled to move in this weekend. The last-minute holdup on the occupancy permit was just the latest in a series of frustrations associated with the 92,000-square-foot building, completion of which is a year overdue.
