Victor City Hall Not Safe

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Inspectors last week determined that the Victor City Hall building is in very serious shape and needs immediate attention in the interest of safety. City Administrator Olivia Goodale recently became concerned with safety issues and reached out to the Building Inspector and Fire Marshall to request that City Hall be inspected. Their inspection reports brought to light multiple safety concerns including larger issues relating to fire walls separating shop areas from office and public areas, as well as major concerns with the permanent wiring, the ceiling, ventilation, means of egress, and ADA accessibility. The reports further recommend an engineering analysis of the building’s structural steel frame, which was to take place Friday. Since receipt of the reports, initial safety precautions are being made including relocation of office staff to different areas within City Hall. In light of these findings, the Victor City Council will consider options to proceed including relocating City administrative and public functions to an alternative location. Mayor Jeff Potter says the current City Hall building has served Victor well over the past 40 or so years. He notes the building has served the community to its potential and it is time consideration be given to the health and safety of city employees.
