8-23-17: GRANTS PASS CITY COUNCIL TO DECIDE FATE OF BUILDING

THE GRANTS PASS CITY COUNCIL WILL DECIDE THE FATE OF A BUILDING PURCHASED FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY. THE CHOICE? EITHER KNOCK IT DOWN AND REBUILD, OR REMODEL THE BUILDING FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. CHIEF BILL LANDIS SAYS THAT COST WILL BE A BIG PART OF THE DECISION, AND THAT DEMOLITION AND REBUILDING WOULD COST AROUND 6.2 MILLION DOLLARS, WHEREAS A REMODEL WILL COST ABOUT 1.2 MILLION DOLLARS LESS.
