Regarding the alternate site article in the Aug. 1 Monitor, I wonder if we are heading toward yet another “let’s ignore the public’s desires” project by rushing to put the Municipal Building at Trinity and 15th Streets. I recall that public sentiment was to first renovate the now demolished Municipal Building, and if not that, to rebuild in the same location.
Now that county government is pushing ahead to build the skateboard park next to a tot lot, the public library, and the senior center, is appears to be forging ahead with action that supposedly gives the county its office space for “about $3 million” out of a project cost of “about $41 million.”
What kind of math is this? Does it mean that if the county puts up about $3 million, it will have the opportunity to rent their space from a private entity for a long, long time, or until their lease is not renewed? To quote Mr. Mortillaro, “the county would simply have office space should the Municipal Building be rebuilt at its current location,” and it would “run the county about $20 million,” as if that would be some kind of tragedy.
