The city of Warren is looking to possibly spend$3 million to buy a building in order to relocate several departments.

On Wednesday night, City Council placed into first reading a total bond package of $9.5 million. Of that, $2.5 million would go to fix roads, another $4 million would go for capital improvements and $3 mililon would go to buy a building to house the city’s health, community development and income tax departments, which are currently housed in the Community Development building on Main Street.

Warren Safety-Service Director Enzo Cantalemessa said the building has seen better days. Cantalemessa can’t say what location they are considering for the one-stop building, but said the bond is not building specific.

He hopes that council passes the measure and they can begin the move by the end of the year.
