Roy City Council approved on Monday night the funding of three projects to install a public works storage container on a city-owned parcel near the former Roy City Library. 

In a unanimous vote, the council agreed to spend up to $10,500 for the three projects. That includes surveying the parcel boundaries, site-obscuring landscaping and installation of fences and gates. 

The city acquired the 3,600-square-foot parcel, located at 212 Peterson Street, back in May. It paid the New Beginnings Church of Roy $1,336.38 for the site, which included prorated property taxes, according to City Clerk-Treasurer Debra Dearinger.

The city has budgeted about $30,000 for the entire project. Costs for demolition of a small residential building, asbestos surveying and decommissioning the septic tank cost the city about $11,400 of their budget.

The public works storage container that will be moved to the property is currently on James Street near maintenance. The dimensions are 40 feet by 8 feet. 

The city is projected to have $8,100 left for smaller projects related to the container’s installation, unless larger expenses are brought to the council for approval.
