Siting committee meeting attendance down

-A A +A

Things are coming down to the wire for the Municipal Building Siting Citizens’ Selection Committee.

Committee members are working feverishly in an effort to be able to provide council with their recommendations for a new municipal building site by Sept. 30.

On Thursday, the committee will not only hold their regularly scheduled meeting, but they will also host a meet and greet session from 5:30 to 6 p.m. in council chambers.

The preliminary meeting will give the public the opportunity talk to the consultants, FBT Architects and EPS, Inc., who will assist the committee.

The regular committee meeting will immediately follow the open house.

The committee has narrowed its site choices down to three. The Los Alamos Apartment site, 1247 Central Avenue and the apartment complexes at Iris and Myrtle streets are all being considered as a possible site for the new municipal building.

Committee Chair Stan Primak and Vice Chair Carl Thornton have voiced some concern over the public’s low attendance at the committee’s regular meetings. “Attendance has been down. We’re not getting input we want,” Primak said. Only a handful of people interested in the topic have been attending the bi-weekly meetings since they started in June.
