Study shows Hewitt buildings in bad shape

The City of Hewitt says they need new administration buildings and a recent study proves that point.

The city ordered a professional evaluation of the city’s headquarters.

The study found that pouring any more money into the facility is a lost caused.

The mish-mash of some 40-year-old buildings houses the police department, city hall, administrative offices and the city library.

Temporary sheds are being used because there simply isn’t enough space.

And with a bond election coming up in May, the solution may come in the near future.

“It’s a need," said Adam Miles, Hewitt City Manager. "We have been discussing this stuff for literally decades and the timing hasn’t been right. But what I’ve been hearing from the city council is that we cannot kick the can on our facilities. We need to address these issues and move forward with them.”

A city council meeting in two weeks should set the stage for public vote in May.
