CHEESE FACTORY WILL BE EXPANDING
The lease is for an initial term of three years at $600 ($.50/sq.ft) per month for the first year, increasing to $750 per month for the second year, and $1,000 per month for the third year. Face Rock Creamery is hopeful that within a year they would be able to negotiate a price with the City for purchasing additional property at the existing City Shop property so they could construct a larger building for cheese storage, shipping, packaging, and offices. The new lease can be canceled by Face Rock Creamery with 90 days advance notice. In the event of such a cancellation without mutual agreement, the City would retain ownership of the building improvements and refrigeration equipment.
Regarding the City’s use of the building and property, the plan is to relocate all of the City Shop operations to the new City Shop site southwest of the 11th Street and Rosa Road intersection. This will move the emergency vehicle, equipment, and materials storage out of the 100 year flood plain and make them much less susceptible tsunami inundation. The storage which is currently located in the warehouse building will be relocated to other parts of the existing building and to the transformer building which has already been constructed at that new location. The most critical use in the building is the “hot stick” room where the equipment and for working on live (“hot”) electric transmission lines is kept in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. As part of the new City Shop relocation process, the Electric Department has determined that the preferred alternative would be to purchase a “hot stick” trailer. Such a trailer has been ordered, and is preferable to a fixed location, since it will allow all of the equipment to be immediately hauled and available at any work site.
