HIGH SPRINGS ‒ The High Springs City Commission has approved the purchase of a parts warehouse storage shed. The 12 x 30-ft. storage shed will be used for Public Works such as water, sewer, streets and cemetery. The storage shed is being obtained from Buildings and More, Lake City, for $5,850.

At the Aug. 27 Commission meeting, City Manager Joel DeCoursey, Jr. and Finance Director Jennifer Stull said the existing structure had become a safety hazard.

Although Commissioner Scott Jamison said he had no doubt the structure was needed, he didn’t understand why this item wasn’t included in the current year’s budget. In response it seems the employees were making do with the existing structure until they couldn’t do so any longer.

Stull explained that there was more than $12,000 in contingency funds in the Water Department budget, which she had planned to use for this purpose. However, Jamison said he would prefer to see the money come out of capital outlay and for the City to use the contingency fund as a last resort.

Commissioners unanimously approved the purchase. The storage shed will be located behind the Public Works office.
