RE: City Hall Expansion and Renovation Project
Additional Funding to Complete Renovations
The City Hall Expansion and Renovation Task Force has been meeting since February to provide guidance and oversight of the design team regarding the development of plans for this project.
During the conceptual design stage, it became evident that additional funding would be required to complete both the expansion and renovation portion of the project.
The Task Force supports the idea that City Hall expansion work be funded using the available State Legislative Grant monies; and that it would be appropriate to use City reserve account depreciation funds to complete the renovation of the existing City Hall building.
Attached is the current budget for the project, separating the expansion work from the renovation work. An additional $486,948 is required to complete all renovation work.
Recommendations: The City Council pass an ordinance authorizing the use of depreciation funds to complete the renovation portion of the project.
