Environmental assessment, cleanup needed to clear Statuary lot
Published 02/19/2010, The Daily Republic
An environmental assessment and cleanup is needed before the former Statuary property on Mitchell’s Main Street can be razed and converted to a parking lot, City Council members learned this week.
The city’s 2009 budget included $273,370 to demolish and fill the property’s large underground structure, which was part of a car dealership for many decades. The money was not spent last year, and it appeared Monday on a list of budgeted items that the City Council is considering carrying over to the current budget.
