TOLEDO CHRONICLE - A ribbon cutting ceremony planned this Saturday morning, March 12, at 9:45 a.m. will mark the completion of the new $1.1 million Toledo Public Works Building. Following the event, the public is invited to tour the spacious new building with an open house hosted by the city.

The new facility is located south of the Arrowhead Mobile Home Park on an extension of Prospect Drive on the city’s southwest side. The structure is adjacent to the new U.S. Highway 30 Expressway.

The state I-Jobs Flood Mitigation Program paid a total of $729,500 of the building cost. It replaces the city shop building on West Ross Street which was subject to flooding from the nearby Deer Creek. that building was built in the mid-1960s to replace a city maintenance facility located south of the present Toledo Fire Station.

The new building is “green” in design. Dave Stoklasa, engineer with Snyder and Associates, Cedar Rapids, said the new building will feature a heat pump and solar technology.
