County council passed a motion allocating $134,500 for design work on the new Municipal Building. The council also funded the Public Works Department at $21.1 million, the Fire Department at $23.1 million, the Police Department at $7.2 million and the Community Development Department at $9.9 for fiscal 2009. Council deferred a decision on the $21 million capital projects portion of the public works department until May 5.
Public Works Department Director Kyle Zimmerman told council the design funds would include building specs and floor plans, square footage and price tables, an assessment of parking needs by state codes, a construction timeline, and a project cost estimate.
Council Vice Chair Robert Gibson said this was far too much money for a stage I design.
Councilor Ken Milder said the county needed to allocate sufficient funds to get sufficient detail to make a sound decision.
“While we’re deliberating, the price goes up” said Councilor Jim West, participating by phone. “We need to keep the wheels moving.”
The motion passed 6-to-1, with Gibson opposed.
