If you are, the council will be discussing the possibility of moving it to the 5th floor this Tuesday night.
The meeting starts at 6, a new start time effective this week. Click here to see this week’s agenda.
Moving the court from its’ current leased space will save the city over $100,000 a year. Citizens and council members Rick Hansen and John Knutsen have been pushing for this since the beginning of the year. It has been halted largely due to longtime councilmembers Kathy Turner and Don Malloy, who say the building was not built to house the court. Turner also claims that a study was done to show that it isn’t feasible to move it into City Hall, but has failed to share the actually “study.”
With the city in a $5 million deficit, we encourage anyone who is interested in saving $100,000 come down to City Hall, September 7, 6 pm and share their thoughts.
