DEWITT — The City of DeWitt finance committee last week approved a budget that allows for $185,000 of improvements to City Hall in the upcoming fiscal year.
City Hall will remain in its current location at 414 E. Main St., but improvements will be made to the existing structure to better serve the government, says MayDay News.
“The question we asked was ‘What does it take for City Hall to fit our needs?’” city councilman Dave Hunsaker said.
Plans for the improvements have yet to reach even the design phase, but the committee discussed possible improvements.
“Things like space for records,” Hunsaker said. “We’d like to add more space for our police department as well.”
“We have so much stuff,” said DeWitt Police administrative assistant Hillary Fox, “we could use more room for storage.”
The committee also discussed the need for a police department garage as well as a women’s locker room.
“We definitely need more storage for files,” said Deputy Clerk and Treasurer Anne Lech.
The budget will be sent to the mayor and city council for final approval.
