SPOKANE, Wash. -- The City of Spokane will break ground on its new combined Solid Waste Management and Fleet maintenance facility on April 25.
The facility, known as the Nelson Service Center, will enable the city to convert its solid waste fleet from diesel fuel to compressed natural gas, according to officials.
Construction on the two-story center is expected to continue until middle 2015. The facility is expected to cost around $14,000,000. The City said it anticipates the center will generate savings over 10 years to cover most of the cost of construction.
The groundbreaking celebration will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the building site at 915 N. Nelson.
