Proposed Municipal Building. David Nichols, Downing Architects, presented the proposed municipal building space analysis and preliminary design plans. This building would house City Hall staff, Council Chambers, and Police Department and would be located at 101 S. Main Street. Discussion was held on space analysis for departments and the request from Karen Puck for the City to provide space for the Walcott Historical Society. Following discussion, it was determined that there would not be space available for the Walcott Historical Society but the current City Hall offices could be considered as a future alternative. Nichols will rework the designs and present at a future meeting.
Koehler moved and Jacob Puck seconded to adjourn at 6:50 p.m. Ayes: All. Motion carried.
