Councilors have questions about City Hall Annex

(Continued)

Councilors agreed the building’s elevator is prone to breaking down, which poses a problem if a handicapped person wants to attend a public meeting on the upper floors.

The lease, which would begin March 1, includes an option to extend the agreement for up to seven one-year terms beyond the initial three years.

On Wednesday, councilors requested adding language to the lease that requires any lease extension to be approved by the City Council.

Councilor Josh Turiel acknowledged something Driscoll has said, as well: 120 Washington St. is not a long-term solution for the city.

“At this point, I don’t see any better options on the horizon in the next two, three, four years,” Turiel said.
