Approving the city utility’s annual fuel purchase, Nome’s City Council now has to find a new candidate for city manager.
Alongside an amicable meeting with Nome Public Schools, the city council on Monday agreed to spend roughly $420,000 to add full-building humidification to the planned Richard Foster Building.
On budget with the city’s new museum, library, and cultural center, the City Council addressed the utility’s loans before discussing how to spend an NSEDC donation and how to eventually deal with legal marijuana sales.
Nome’s $19 million Richard Foster Building is moving gradually forward, and while the building’s skeleton on Steadman and 7th Avenue begins to bulk up, what’s inside the building is still being solidified.
The city estimates about $800,000 could be collected by removing the sales tax exemption for churches, nonprofits, and other organizations in town.
When paired with a $1.3 million grant from the Rasmuson Foundation, the Richard Foster Building has most—but not all—of its funding needs met.
Today, the city manager’s office is meeting with members of Kawerak about a $3.2 million funding gap for Nome’s proposed Richard Foster Building.
