City balks at PSJRA move

Commissioner Rex Buzzett said the city has a valid lease for 10 years under which the PSJRA must be provided working space in the Welcome Center.

Unless the county was willing to pick up the moving costs – at least $800 – and pick up the insurance on the building which is now paid by the city, commissioners had no real incentive to agree to the move.

“There is no reason for us to move and it cost our agency money,” Buzzett said.

Gail Alsobrook director of the PSJRA, said that estimates showed that the monthly operational costs would not change with the new location; the only new expenses would be that associated with the move.

Commissioners unanimously approved a motion from Buzzett that would leave the PSJRA in place until the county agreed to cover the moving costs, pick up the Welcome Center insurance and amend the interlocal agreement language on the fire tax.
