Why isn't the city using the Old Library?

Originally, the Facilities Master Plan recommended that the Old Library be repurposed to house staff. Although adding more square footage was recommended, the council decided to opt for a less expensive remodel in February 2017. Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that the building was not structurally sound (see structural engineer’s report here). 

In 2018, the city council once again took up the issue. After a lengthy public process, council pivoted away from investing money in the troubled building, and looked to add needed space at the current Kaysville City Hall. 

The Old Library is currently being evaluated by the Kaysville-Fruit Heights Museum Committee 501 c (3) as a potential home. There are no plans to tear it down.
