Doodly squat: A set up for a new building on a new site... and there, my friends, go your property taxes
Hold on to your wallets, as it looks from Sunday's article like Weber County Library is setting us up to spring for a new main branch:
I say doodly-squat.
First of all, most of the bench from say Adams to Quincy has underground water erratically flowing through it; and they dealt with it in the current building. Those things wear out; and technology has changed alot since then to deal with it. So before we go buying a new piece of property in the downtown area lets think twice and save the scare tactics.
Secondly, regarding the debris: Build out a new basement and the debris goes with it.
The boiler and such: Put a new one in. That takes up minimal space.
Methinks this is a set up for a new building on a new site... and there my friends go your property taxes.
I could be wrong of course, but this is how I see it.
One more thing: How many issues is a new piece of property going to have that it would have the same central location? So you would be spending site costs anyways...plus the cost of the land.
