Busy Cottonwood council meeting Tuesday

Jon Hutchinson
Staff Reporter

The Cottonwood City Council will hit the ground running Tuesday during its first meeting of 2014.

The council will set the stage for construction of its proposed regional communications center. The council will open the door to the new Verde Valley Teen Center, set the stage for the long-awaited 12th Street reconstruction and agree to the purchase of in-car cameras for police vehicles.

The new communications center will be built on property east of Cottonwood Public Safety building. The council will be asked to approve a Maximum Price Amendment to the contract for the selected Construction Manager at Risk, D.L. Withers, for construction of the building. The figure is $2.410 million.

In addition, a lease purchase for $850,000 will fund the equipment purchases for the new communications center.

The council will be asked to approve a two-phase construction of 12th Street from 89A to Fir Street. Development Services Manager Dan Lueder says it was disappointing that the city was not able to secure rights of way in time for the north end of the project. The idea would be to begin construction on the Fir end first.

The Verde Valley Youth Commission organization is ready to begin reconstructing the old Mingus Avenue fire house to turn part of the structure into a Teen Center. The council needs to approve a lease agreement.

The council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday evening in the Council Chambers at 826 N. Main Street.
