The City of Scottsbluff is looking at options on what to do with the former building that hosted the Senior Center until they permanently shut down operations last summer due to the Pandemic.
City Attorney Kent Hadenfeldt says that the Senior Center’s Board renewal was up, and they opted to dissolve the corporation.
The City owns the building, which in recent months has been used for training by Scottsbluff Firefighters.
Interim City Manager Rick Kuckkahn says an appraiser is coming in to look at the value of the building, which can help in the decision on whether the city should sell the building or continue to use it for training purposes.
City Councilman Nathan Green also inquired on how much it would cost the city to rent or build a similarly sized training facility if the city were to sell the existing building.
Councilman Jordan Colwell also expressed concerns on what the city could offer for a gathering spot for seniors in the future.
