City Commissioners Narrow List Of Fleet Management Sites
Commissioners were presented with a list of six possible sites where the city can build a new fleet management garage, and narrowed it down to three. One of those sites also happens to be one that the Association of Businesses and Citizens of North Main have been looking at. The Association is a group of people who live and work near the proposed site for the Homeless One Stop Center on North Main Terrace, and they've recently been looking for alternate sites for the homeless facility. They plan to propose that idea in more detail during a meeting with the city on August 21st.
"The commissioners have been very open and willing to consider it," said Association Spokesperson Mark Hurm. "They made it very clear last night that they were not there to decide on a co-ventures use, if you will, for both facilities, but they were there to make a determination on rankings for the material storage facility, and that's certainly understood."
Hurm says it would help the city out financially to build the Homeless One Stop Center on the proposed site, because cities are eligible for more state and federal grants on new construction projects than they are when they rent a building.
