Fridley City Hall and Public Works buildings are over 60 years old, and as the costs of repairs piled up, the City Council authorized a study last year by an independent engineering and architectural firm to look at the conditions of these buildings. The results show deficiencies in 3 areas:
  1. Handicap accessibility in City Hall
  2. Significant deterioration in both buildings
  3. Lack of space for operations (Approx. 20,000 sq ft of additional space is needed.)
This 6 minute video gives a good overview of the current conditions of the Fridley City Hall and Public Works buildings.
