The city expects to accept bids on the construction of a new public works building in the next few weeks.

For many years, the city has used an approximately 2,000-square-foot facility on the south side of the cemetery at about 1400 S. 1000 West. The new building will be 5,000 square feet in size and located near the city's equestrian area, near 2700 South and 2300 West.City Manager Mike Moyes said he expects the cost of the new building to be around $300,000. He said the design of the new public works building means it can easily be added to as required by future city growth.

The old public works facility will be converted into a cemetery maintenance building.
