Dozens of city buildings, including community and senior centers, as well as the police and fire departments brought forth information outlining either renovations or new facilities they would need.
Some of the renovations would cost around $100,000 to begin, some estimated at upwards of $400,000. In total, Mayor Glen Robertson estimates renovations would cost about 9 million dollars.
"It's just time, I mean this police station is unsafe, the firestations are aged facilities, and the EOC is just not operational," said Mayor Robertson.
"It's not a safe environment, we've got leaking pipes, mold, asbestos, we've got cielings falling in, this building is absolutely unsafe," said Robertson.
Councilman Todd Klein thinks some of the issues at the police station could have some temporary fixes, to at least postpone a little longer spending on a new facility
Councilman Todd Klein said he does see how there could be a rank in terms of importance, "In terms of facilities, I think you can rank order those, your fire stations, your police stations, much more essential and critical that you've got those," said Councilman Klein.
"I like to find out where the public's at, the citizens and what is it they would like to see us do, what are the priorities for the citizens, that's going to be as important as anything we do," said Councilman Klein.
He also said he does not anticipate these different renovations coming to a vote in a bond election until at least May 2014 at the earliest.
The meeting Monday was primarily to gather as much information as possible now, but this is just the first of many meetings council anticipates on these new facilities. Mayor Robertson said he hope to have one fire station at least on the next City Council meeting on February 28th.
