City staff hold ceremony recognizing new construction

The City of Marathon broke ground on its new utilities and public works building on Wednesday. Representatives from the City of Marathon, contractor, designer and oversight agent attend the ground breaking of the new utilities and public works building in Marathon. The $1.9 million structure, located at 104th Street and U.S.1, is paid for by the state Mayfield Grant (70 percent) and a gas tax.

“Besides being a much needed home for both public works and the utility departments, it will also be a centralized facility for shipping and receiving, storing equipment, and allows us to be efficient by storing needed materials such as gravel and sand on site,” said Marathon City Manager Chuck Lindsey.

The project was designed by K2M Designs, constructed by Pedro Falcon Contractors and overseen by a Chen-Moore & Associates representative.

When finished, it will also feature men and women’s showers, secure storage area, card key access and video surveillance.
