Price City gets ready to transfer land for new county building

Discussions on transferring parcels of land that would be used for a possible new County Office Complex will be on Price City's agenda this week.

Two public hearings will be held by Price City, including during the regular Wednesday City Council meeting at Price City Hall at 5:30 p.m. Another public hearing on the topic was discussed during the Price City Planning and Zoning meeting last evening.

Nick Tatton, Price City community director, said the process of transferring the parcels of land has been moving along smoothly. The "orphan parcels" located at 750 E. 100 N. in Price, are a part of the location the county has selected as the area for a new county office complex.

Tatton said he has heard from concerned residents in the community about the proposed project. Some have ranged from being upset with the county wanting to build a new office complex to possibly having a large vacant building on Main Street in the future, he said.

The multi-million dollar administration building is something that the county has been working on for many years. The current building on Main Street is considered to be too old and dilapidated and one of the main goals for the new proposed building would be to centralize and have all of the county services in one location.

The county has previously determined that the current offices are no longer adequate. Store rooms have been converted into offices and the electrical system is barely able to handle its current load.
