South Salt Lake city offices won't likely have a permanent home for at least five years.
Mayor Jim Davis said the City Council is still trying to decide where and when to build a new city hall. And probably won't make a decision until 1995 - at the earliest.After 35 years in the same location, the old city offices on 2700 S. Main Street were demolished to make way for FHP of Utah's new $60 million medical complex.
In December the city began leasing space in the Boyer Building, 220 E. Morris Ave.
Davis said rent in the Boyer Building is $7.65 per square foot - an amount he says compares favorably with surrounding South Salt Lake rates of $8.50 to $12.50 a square foot and downtown rates of $14 to $22 a square foot.
Davis said the rental cost for a year is $298,575 - or 2.75 percent of the city's $10.8 million budget.
The city has a one-year lease, but the rental cost is averaged over a 10-year period.
Proceeds from the sale of the old city hall property are currently invested with the state treasurer's office in its investment fund - approximately $800,000 at 8 percent interest yielding earnings of $64,000 per year, he said.
