FLAGSTAFF, AZ – On March 28, 2017 the Flagstaff City Hall Council Chambers meeting room located at 211 W. Aspen Ave. experienced structural concerns from a recent snow storm due to the failure of a structural member holding up the roof of the Council Chambers.
The Chambers were constructed in 1983 and the City is moving forward with the necessary repairs and structure remediation. “We are working with structural engineers on a design to repair the Council Chambers and Conference Room that will resolve the roof support issues and we look forward to using the room for board and commission meetings as well as council meetings with our citizens” stated City Manager Josh Copley.
