A southwest Kansas National Guard
armory where citizen-soldiers once trained is now a storage site
for old electric and water meters. And officials in Garden City say
it will be at least six months before they settle on what to do
with the building.
The armory is one of 18 handed back to local communities as the
Kansas National Guard consolidated units.
The Garden City Telegram reports that city manager Matt Allen
gave an update on the armory at a town hall meeting Tuesday. Allen
says the city began using it in August to store old electric and
water meters as new ones are installed around town.
That project is expected to take about six more months. After
that, Allen says officials will resume exploring options for using
or possibly selling the armory.
