The Salida City Council holds a work session this evening, Monday, September 18, at 6:00 p.m. in Council chambers at the Touber Building, 448 E. First Street.
On the agenda is a “conceptual review” of a proposed campsite at 1-3 Hillside Drive, just north of the Arkansas River and Calco Road. This is a revision of a plan first proposed in 2021.
Also on the agenda is a first look at the City’s 2024 budget, and two discussion items relating to the new fire station: a Certificate of Participation (COP) sale, as a means of financing it, and the construction contract with Neenan Archistruction.
Interim City Administrator Christy Doon will be reviewing the history of the contract, including the changes to a heating/cooling system made to the original plan when it became apparent that the original concept of a geothermal system was not going to pan out.
