Building, for the bus drivers

Mayor Dana Williams and members of the Park City Council on Thursday donned hard hats and used gold-painted shovels during a ceremonial groundbreaking for a residential building where bus drivers will be housed.

The site is outside the Public Works Building, along the Short Line Road side of the property.

The three-story 8,045-square-foot building will have 13 rooms where people will stay, each just under 300 square feet in area. Each will have a bathroom and space for a bed and a kitchenette.

It is designed for bus drivers hired on a seasonal basis. Officials see the rooms as an incentive for the drivers. They will pay rent, but the rate is not set.

Work is scheduled to begin in earnest within a week. Completion is anticipated by Dec. 15.

The project is anticipated to cost $1.9 million, with three-quarters of the cost funded through federal grants.
