Pilot Butte Relocation Petition
Petition for Pilot Butte Town Office to Stay at Current Location
August 24, 2015
We, the citizens of the town of Pilot Butte, petition the members of council and town administration to maintain their current office space and refrain from moving to the new strip mall.
Our concerns include the financial burden for the cost of rent of $4,000 per month plus the $178,000 required for the renovation of the space. In addition, the agreement that the town is seeking with the landlord by providing snow removal in exchange for a rental reduction does not compensate for the costs the town will incur for the wages and equipment needed to perform this work. Currently, the town does not pay a rental fee and this fiscal addition is proposed at a time when residents are taxed by the overall costs incurred for the water project.
Additional large ticket fiscal spending such as this is relevant to the town residents.
As tax payers of Pilot Butte, we demand that the members of council and the Town of Pilot Butte administration do not sign an agreement to rent space at the strip mall and maintain office space at their current location.
