City moving forward with Joint Maintenance Facility

The City Commission has given approval to move forward with site acquisition and design of a future joint maintenance facility located on vacant land west of the Wastewater Treatment Plant off US Highway 24. The facility would consolidate and house hundreds of public works and parks and recreation employees.

Currently, operations are scattered across the community in aging and undersized facilities for parks and forestry, street, water/wastewater distribution, and fleet divisions. The joint maintenance facility will create greater operational efficiencies to maintain and grow a high quality of life for residents and meet the needs of the community.

Total cost to construct the facility in 2020 is estimated at $11.9 million, which includes site acquisition and revenue from the sale of existing facility locations. Over 90% of proposed funding for the joint maintenance facility would include revenues source outside of the general fund (property and sales taxes), such as utility revenues and annual revenues from the State.
