Proposed Multipurpose Municipal Building Project (City Hall Project)
Members of the City Council and City staff are working with an architectural firm to create preliminary designs of what a new and remodeled City Hall could look like on the current City Hall property. The current City Hall was built in 1965 and poses significant safety, maintenance, and operational concerns.
A potential new or remodeled multi-purpose building would seek to correct these concerns as well as bring the City Hall, City Hall Annex and some staff from the Water Utility into one building. The goal of combining these buildings would be to provide a central location for residents to interact with City staff.

Workshop #2, May 2-3, 2018:Council members and staff participated in a workshop to further refine the City Hall concepts and look at cost modeling.
