The same recession that is causing economic crisis at City Hall has given city officials a chance to buy badly needed office space for the Planning Department at a bargain price. City Manager Michael W. Parness announced Wednesday that officials have an opportunity to buy an office building, where space is already rented to house the Community Development Department, for $2.75 million, about $1.65 million under its market appraisal.

City Hall is under siege, but officials aren't in a political battle. They're fighting off an invasion of termites. "We've got termites coming out of ceiling panels and dropping onto people's desks," said Mark Somerville, maintenance services manager. "We've had intermittent termite problems, but nothing this bad before." Half a dozen termite nests have been found in City Hall, Somerville said, with the accounting, human resources and city clerk's offices particularly hard hit.

Space at City Hall is so limited that people take tests for city jobs in a room that doubles as a storage space. Those recalled for interviews are sometimes interrupted or distracted because they meet with staff in the Mayor's Conference Room, a high-traffic area adjacent to the City Council chambers. To ease the space crunch and consolidate city functions, such as processing building permit applications, the city is considering two options.

Responding to state recommendations, city officials are spending $23,000 for new equipment to bring the jail up to standard. The expenditures include a $2,000 voice-activated monitoring system and $7,468 for steel and glass doors that will afford officers better visibility into cells. Lt. Hector Rivera, the department's services commander, said most of the new items were required by the Board of Corrections, which inspected the site in March.

The city is requesting bids for a project to repaint three municipal buildings--the Senior Citizen Center/Orange County Library, the Community Center and the Ole Hanson Beach Club. City officials say the three buildings, which have not been spruced up since 1982, should cost no more than $60,000 to paint. The bidding process will open on Oct. 22. The outside of the library and senior center, which are adjoining buildings under one roof, will be repainted for an estimated $30,000.

Just two months after the purchase of a $2.75-million office building, which the city was already renting to house its Community Development Department, city officials say they are close to leasing out the remaining half of the building. City officials had originally thought it would take five years to find tenants for 90% of the 55,000-square-foot building. The building was about half full when the city bought it from Bank of America in late June.

The City Council has approved a scaled-back plan for a new animal shelter that will reduce the size of the project by about a third. The council voted last week to eliminate 2,000 square feet from the shelter, half of it in the office area and half in the kennel. Kumi Johnson, the city's purchasing manager, said the original design was crafted by an architect who was not given a suggested construction cost and would have cost $800,000.

The City Council has approved buying an office building, which already houses the city's Community Development Department, for $2.75 million. By buying instead of renting badly needed office space in the building at 910 Calle Negocio, officials say the city will save about $91,000 to $237,000 in the first year alone, depending on the financing arrangements. "Financially, it does make sense," Councilwoman Candace Haggard said at Wednesday night's council meeting.
