Claremont closes Junior Sports League building
The city fire safety, building code and health inspectors found numerous violations, city manager Guy Santagate said Monday.
Three major issues led to the closure: the fire alarm system is not up to current standards; there are building access issues; and the furnace is not functioning properly, he said.
While there is no space at the community center to accommodate the roller skating, park and recreation employees can work to create new programs for city youth, Santagate said.
The council is meeting Wednesday night, but the issue is not on the agenda, Santagate said.
“There is no funding in the budget to repair the building,” Santagate said.
Claremont Mayor James Neilsen and city council members toured the Junior Sports League building last month and found several matters of concern for the city, triggering the series of building inspections.
