Callaway City Officials Talk About Future of City Hall

CALLAWAY, Fla. - Changes are in the near future for Callaway's City Hall.
"For the past year, probably longer, there's been some discussion about renovating part of our city hall, as well as we know we need to replace the roof," said City Manager Michael Fuller.
But first, city officials have to decide if they want to keep the current building or move to a new one. The city already brought in an architect to design plans to renovate the front of the current building.
"So basically we've got completed renovation plans. We have kind of put those on hold until we can weigh whether or not it would be a better idea to move city hall, or if we should continue like we were," said Fuller.
The proposed plans include a newer, bigger area for residents to sit while they wait. But a recent test of city hall, which was built in the 1970's, shows the presence of asbestos.
"The good news is right now it is all sufficiently encapsulated in the flooring and doesn't pose any threat or danger to our employees," said Fuller.
So Callaway officials brought up the idea of moving city hall to the Arts and Conference Center.
"The size of that building would accommodate city hall so i think that's why it's considered an option," said Fuller.
The main goal, Fuller says, is to make city hall more functional for employees and residents to use.
