Citrus Heights examines finances of new city hall
The Citrus Heights City Council will hold a study session Thursday on a financial analysis of a proposed project to help fund a new city hall. The city proposes to demolish current city offices at Fountain Square Drive and Greenback Lane, with the exception of the Police Department building, to make way for a three-story medical office building to be occupied by Dignity Health. Dignity Health would pay to construct and maintain the building, and lease payments to the city over a 15-year period would help cover costs of constructing a new city hall at another location. The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 7117 Greenback Lane.
