The City approved design changes for the new $7.4 million public works building under construction on the former Construction Machinery Company brownfields site. The 130,000 square-foot structure will feature storage room for 150 vehicles, including motor pool cars, garbage and dump trucks, and motor graders, and will house the street department and central garage operations. Future plans include consolidating traffic operations and building maintenance into the facility. The City secured a $5 million I-JOBS Grant and a $1 million grant from the Black Hawk County Gaming Association to match bond funds allocated for the construction of the structure.
