Terrace: Civic Center bond gains support
The City Council adopted a resolution on Tuesday night in support of a borrowing $25 million to build a new Civic Center. Nine people spoke in favor of the measure that is expected to appear on the April 23 ballot.
The proposal is the same as one that fell 124 votes short of passage on the August ballot, and is a scaled-down version of a $37.5 million proposal that failed in 2010.
The ceiling of the old City Council chambers collapsed in 2008, revealing a layer of asbestos and prompting city employees to abandon the crumbling building. An interim City Hall is in rented space.
