Dade City moves forward on design of new city hall

DADE CITY — The City Commission has approved spending the first major chunk of funding from its $5.7-million budget to build a new city hall and police station.

At a meeting Tuesday, commissioners voted to pay St. Petersburg firm Wannemacher Jensen Architects, Inc. $449,375 for design services including creating site and floor plans, as well as construction drawings for the new building.

The city will then put construction of the project out to bid.

In November, the commission voted to move forward on a 21,000-square-foot L-shaped structure between Pasco and Meridian avenues at Fifth Street. Estimates are that the design process will take six months followed by a year of construction.

In May, the city demolished the old city hall located on the same block due to deterioration that brought safety concerns. City employees have since been working in the adjoining annex building and at the train depot also on Meridian.
