An SNP councillor has demanded council chiefs reveal how much the delayed repairs to one of Aberdeen’s historic buildings will cost when they are finally completed.
Work on the Town House, pictured, began in August 2014, but the project has been hit by a series of delays and the costs have now spiralled to more than £4 million.
The original work was due to cost £1.2m, before rotting wood and other problems were discovered.
It is hoped the repairs will be completed by March.
Stephen Flynn, the leader of the SNP group at the city council, has now written to the chief executive of Aberdeen City Council to ask how much the final cost of the project will be.
Cllr Flynn said: “The Labour, Conservative and Independent councillors running this city need to be honest with the public and explain exactly how much this project is now going to cost.
“I simply cannot comprehend why this project is being shrouded in secrecy.”
A city council spokeswoman said the chief executive would address the issues with Cllr Flynn.
Finance convener Willie Young denied there was secrecy over the project.
