During Monday's meeting, the Algoma City Council will consider retaining Robert E. Lee and Associates to conduct a needs assessment for all municipal facilities. Treasurer Amber Shallow says the impetus for the evaluation is the aging ladder house.
The assessment applies to facilities needs only. It is not for considering any form of reorganization or to recommend layoffs. The cost must come in below $15-thousand dollars. The city has a close relationship with Robert E. Lee and Associates, using them for much of the recent downtown construction.
