Seniors will get to keep their current location at Eastgate Town Center rent-free for another year, but the city must put up a sound wall to shield adjacent tenants from noise.
Brent Goldberg, city CEO, also told City Council members that Eastgate is requiring the city to purchase two decibel meters. He said the city could face expenses of $500 per day if the sound gets excessive.
Mr. Goldberg said Eastgate officials said the sound wall should take care of the noise problems.
Eastgate has offered to build the wall, which should cost less than $20,000, it was stated.
The seniors were up in arms recently when they were told by the city that they would have to vacate, and the plan was to merge them into rec centers throughout the city.
Mr. Goldberg said the year will give the city time to find a new suitable location. He said the seniors will have input in that process.
