'Gentleman on Bainbridge Island' buying Poulsbo's old city hall site for $1.2 million
POULSBO — Poulsbo's old city hall on Jensen Way, vacant since November 2010, may have a buyer.
"We have sold the old city hall property to a gentleman on Bainbridge Island for $1.2 million," Mayor Becky Erickson said June 4. "It's a contingency sale. We have to perform certain things and he has to perform certain things, but we have every expectation that the (property) is being sold."
The City Council voted June 4 in favor of selling the property, after discussing the proposed sale in an executive session after its regular meeting. The vote was 5-0 in favor of allowing the mayor to sign the purchase and sale agreement; she was expected to do so on June 5.
One contingency for the city is that the building that now stands on the property will be demolished. The city also has to seek approval from Kitsap County, which at one time had offices in the building and owns 25 percent of the property. In the past, Erickson has said proceeds from the sale of the old city hall property will be used to defray the debt from construction of the new city hall on Moe Street.
