The Town & Country Insurance building has been receiving a face-lift in recent months. A sign was installed three weeks ago on the corner of Superior Street and Second Street, that welcomes people to the downtown region of Webster City.

"Clients and staff have been very patient with us, " said Vice President Doug Follmann. "We are looking to partially move into the new addition at the end of January."

He said at that point staff will vacate the current lobby area so that construction can continue to complete the remodel.

Town & Country Insurance has been busy working on a remodel in recent months. The new addition is expected to be complete by the end of January. Vice President Doug Follmann said that construction should end on the entire building by the middle of March. A new welcome sign has been placed in front of the building on the corner of Superior Street and Second Street.

"We are currently looking at having the construction complete by the middle of March," he said.

The building will be handicapped accessible with all the staff located on one floor. Some staff members currently work on a basement level, which Follmann said has been problematic for some clients. A large parking lot will be located east of the building. Before construction work, the facility had limited parking for clients and staff.

"There will also be a larger meeting and training area for client and staff training meetings," he said. "As our staff has grown, we can finally get everyone together again in one room."

He said that the new construction will be positive toward the business' work flow, making the office more efficient.

"So it's a combination of things - better access for clients and a better work environment for staff," Follmann said. "It also gives us the ability to grow. And we hope to continue to grow."
