Also Monday, council members delayed until a future meeting the purchase of land at 1273 N Broadway for a new home for the information technology department. The purchase price is $735,000 and would come out of the real property fund.
Part of the information technology department is located in the administration offices at 100 E First St., a building to be torn down to make room for the new public safety center.
Council members voted this week to demolish the city administration building on the southeast corner of First Street and Littler Avenue, where the public safety center will be built.
They also agreed to tear down city-owned buildings at Tammy's Laundry, 28 E Hurd; an antiques store at 15 N Littler, the bank drive-thru behind city hall, 25 E First St., and the former animal welfare at 30 W Third St.
