The city would like to note that we have NOT purchased the former fitness center as it is reported in the Independent Register. An offer to purchase resolution 2018-013 for the property located at 708 23rd Street, for $435,721.71 was approved with a 5-1 vote. The purchase agreement includes the following contingencies: that the City receive a $500,000 grant, a positive voter referendum and the city obtains commitments for the funding of not less than $500,000 for the purchase of the property as a senior/community center. A purchase of the property will not occur unless the contingencies are met.
