The Reno City Council is reviewing a report for tomorrow’s meeting that details the condition of the Cal-Neva Casino parking garage. The city is considering buying the garage for $10.
The garage needs upwards of $5 million in repairs to bring it from “poor to fair” to good condition, according to a report by Carl Walker, Inc. (page 583).
The $5 million is up from a previous estimate of $4,570,000. The added costs don’t include more than $700,00 for ADA and other improvements.
It would also cost $300,000 per year to operate.
According to the city’s staff report, the new report does not significantly change the known condition of the facility as discussed in past council meetings.
