Kenai City Manager Rick Koch says the final phase is for approximately 2,000 feet inside the recently finished heavy equipment storage facility located on Marathon Road. Koch says there are already two parties interested in leasing the Airport lands that the city street crews and maintenance personnel will be vacating. Koch: “There’d be a break room for public works, primarily street crew personnel in the morning, there’d be a locker room, bathrooms, a shower room there, that would essentially serve the street side. There will then be a small shop area for our buildings maintenance department, they would have table saws, drill presses, supplies and parts to support the building maintenance operations.” By moving crews space to the warm storage facility, Koch estimates the annual cost to the city would be cut in about half because they would not have the high lease payments. Currently the old city yard where streets crew and maintenance personnel space is located is on Airport lands, which Koch says the city has to lease for around $60,000 per year.
