City Maintenance Facility
Currently the City utilizes four different maintenance facilities across the community: Forestry/Park Maintenance, Fleet Maintenance, Street Maintenance, and Water, Wastewater, and Sewer Maintenance. These facilities were built between 1920-1960 and are now functionally obsolete. These buildings do not have enough space to accommodate all employees, as well as store and maintain necessary equipment for operations. Furthermore, equipment is spread across different city facilities causing operational inefficiencies. The existing fleet maintenance shop cannot service many of the larger trucks and machines, including our fire trucks.
|Design of Facility||2020|
|Sale of existing facilities||2020-2021|
This project would build a new facility to house Forestry, Fleet, Street, Water, Wastewater, Sewer and Park maintenance crews and equipment for city operations. The City is in the process of acquiring land next to the Wastewater Treatment Plant off US-24. The existing facilities would be sold to be re-utilized for non-governmental, commercial use, as these locations are located along commercial corridors in the City (Fort Riley Boulevard and Anderson Avenue). These property would then go back on the tax rolls to generate property taxes and better serve their commercial corridors.
